This Photo Series Of Indian Goddesses Recreated In The 21st Century Is Bold And Beautiful

We have grown up hearing stories about the imperishable Varuni, the fearless Kali, the discerning Saraswati, the Goddess of power Durga and the goddess of riches and substance, Laxmi.

We have been told that every woman around us is a Goddess in herself, because humanity is divine. Photographer Victoria Krundysheva, with real women creates God-like masterpieces. Her message to the world is how if you respect goddesses in their original forms, you have no reason to disrespect, bound or not accept women as they are.

1. Varuni

You call women who drink indecent yet have a Varuni- goddess of wine in Vedas.

Those goddesses you worship are walking daily among us, but you choose to humiliate, harass, rape, disrespect or simply discriminate them. It is time you open your eyes to the actual goddesses till it’s your head in Kali’s hand.

 

2. Kali
