Statue of Hindu Goddess Kali at the Kumbh Mela 2013 festival near Allahabad (India).

This statue was located in the Pilot Baba Ashram.

This is a classic representation of Goddess Kali: She is most often depicted as blue in popular Indian art. Her eyes are red with intoxication, and in absolute rage, her hair is disheveled, and her tongue is lolling. She is often shown naked or just wears a garland of human heads.

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
