Exclusive to the British Museum, a greetings card inspired by a 21st century sculpture of the Hindu goddess Kali.

This card forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

The card is printed in the UK and includes an envelope. The inside of the card is blank for your message, and the card and envelope are sealed with a removable paper sticker, avoiding the need for excess plastic packaging.

The card is based on a sculpture of the Hindu goddess Kali, which was commissioned for the British Museum by Kolkata-based artist Kaushik Ghosh. ‘Ma Kali’ (Mother Kali) is one of the most prominently venerated goddesses in India; associated with wisdom and salvation, she destroys ignorance in order to guide her followers to enlightenment. She is frequently depicted wearing a string of heads around her neck as a symbol of her powers of destruction over the ego, and is often shown trampling on the body of her husband, Shiva.

A fabulous souvenir of the exhibition.
