Kali is the Hindu goddess of death and destruction who holds even the mighty Vishnu in her sway, or under her foot as the case may be. Often depicted holding decapitated heads and wearing various severed body parts on her person she is a fierce, powerful and truly terrifying goddess. But she doesn't just kill people. She destroys things that need destroying like ignorance as she maintains order in the world. She is one of those amazingly fascinating deities who rightfully inspires great fear but is also beneficial.
