Chamunda is a fearsome form of Chandi or Durga, often linked to Kali and is seen as one of the seven Matrikas and 64 yoginis (she being the chief Yogini). She’s associated with the battle-ground, death and disease. Prominent features in her depiction include the typical rotting, withered form; the scorpion as her belly button, smeared in fresh blood; she has flames for hair. Her vahan is a Pishach/Preta, Shava (corpse) or a Lion. In this work, she is depicted as a form of calamity, consuming humans.
