CHINNAMASTAKA

Hindu Fighting Goddess

Terrifying Goddess of Headlessness

The Decapitated One. She can hold her head in her hand without it being joined at the neck. This is a pretty good party trick. Perfect for Halloween.

She is really yet another scary manifestation of Durga who seems to delight in non-de-plumes.
