1. When we look at deities in a temple, they are not necessarily visually aesthetic, they are created in that form in order to represent a certain dimension, as is the case with Linga Bhairavi. There are basically two dimensions to the divine feminine which can be found in Indian temples- Kali, the dark one, and Gouri, the fair one. However, this darkness or fairness is nowhere connected to the skin color or good and evil quotient. The darkness and fairness is visualized as the two different dimensions of existence, both of which is equally essential to make things happen in this world. Where Gouri, being mild, she is always accompanied by Shiva and Kali is always seen alone as a complete force. Gowri is always next to Shiva as an add-on because she is portrayed as a domesticated and civilized woman while Kali is always seen alone as she represents a complete force.
2. From geometric point of view, Bhairavi is constituted of three and a half chakras as she represents Kali with half a heart, hence we cannot expect her to love although she is capable of immense compassion and force. I think, Bhairavi can enhance one’s life tremendously as her energies can life one higher than his present position, both experientially as well as in relation with the rest of the world. It can further enhance one’s life tremendously in terms of competence and mental and physical well being in the world.
3. Hence we can say that Eastern art is not a work of philosophy, it is an attempt to achieve symmetry in connection with the geometry of existence. In other words, it is not an imitation of nature in its physical form but is an adaption in its fundamental skeletal geometry. It translates the energy geometry of a certain dimension of life into a physical form which embodies this dimension in some manner so as to make it easy for people to experience it.
4. As for the external form of it, it need not be aesthetically shaped as it is more about geometrical pattern and perfection in that aspect and the impact that the form has on an individual. However, to achieve geometrical perfection in a stone form, a simple way is to create a small metal yantra, generally made out of gold or copper, and fix it in the chest or the pit of the throat or on the forehead of the deity. The metal form is used so as to compensate for any imperfection that takes place which creating the stone form. All the deities have been created using the yantras in this manner.
