Part of the entrance of a temple, this wooden sculpture is of a Theyyam of the goddess Chamundi in perhaps warrior form. There are many stories and myths regarding her which are performed every year during the months from October to May. This particular depiction of her Theyyam wears a sword, a shield, with a skirt made from the spines of palm leaves, tusks at her mouth to show her fierceness, black paint to enlarge and highlight her eyes and an elaborate headdress again fringed with palm leaf spines. The goddess Chamundi is portrayed in many of her forms including Raktha Chamnundi, Karim Chamundi, Muvalamkuzhi Chamundi, Kundor Chamundi and Madayil Chamundi among many others. The rituals and traditions of Theyyam can be traced back to prehistoric times and having survived the times and changes of history, although picking up a few new customs, still exist in their most basic forms. So do not miss the chance to own this historically and culturally significant artifact.
