INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

CHAMUNDA

Indian Fear Goddess

A terrifying skeletal goddess

She dances while brandishing many horrible things.

In depictions of her, CHAMUNDA seems to be leading some kind of punk band, including a braying hound. We won’t mention the flayed elephant’s ear.
