INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

CHINNAMASTAKA

Indian Fighting Goddess

Terrifying Goddess of Headlessness

She can hold her head in her hand without it being joined at the neck. This seems to be a pretty good party trick.

She is really a manifestation of DURGA who seems to delight in non-de-plumes.
