DETAILED STERLING SILVER

In Hindu mythology, the gods could not kill a demon who was attacking heaven and earth. Each time they cut at the demon with their swords. each drop of blood that hit the ground would turn into another demon.

The gods asked Kali for help, who unraveled her huge tounge so she could lap up every drop of blood before it hit the ground. Drunken by the blood of the demon, Kali began hew own killing spree. She didn't end it until her husband, Shiva, sacrificed himself at her feet.

The pendant of a recumbent Shiva lying under the feet of Kali represents Shiva as the passive potential of creation and Kali as his Shakti. The generic term Shakti denotes the Universal feminine creative principle and the energizing force behind all male divinity including Shiva. Shakti is known by the general name Devi, from the root 'div', meaning to shine. She is the Shining One, who is given different names in different places and in different appearances, as the symbol of the life-giving powers of the Universe. It is she that powers him. This Shakti is expressed as the i in Shiva's name. Without this i, Shiva becomes Shva, which in Sanskrit means a corpse. Thus suggesting that without his Shakti, Shiva is powerless or inert.
