Kali - Goddess of Time and Change.

Kali

Kali ("the black one") is the Goddess of Time, Change and destruction. She is depicted with four or ten arms, her body being black with red eyes and lolling tongue. She is often shown naked or just wearing a skirt made of human arms and a garland of human heads.

She was summoned by Durga to help kill the demon Raktabija, appearing from her forehead in 'terrible countenance, armed with a sword and noose'. Kali destroys Raktabija by sucking the blood from his body and afterwards dances on the field of battle, stepping on the corpses of the slain.
