Pranav Pandya From Kamakoti Mandali in continuation. The goddess is described as a young, sixteen-year-old maiden with fully developed breasts. He was also the Guru of John Woodroffe.
In her four arms, she carries a noose, a sword, a Mātaṅgī, and a club. She has three eyes and a smiling Mātaṅgī. Her images are the visual demonstration of bottling a precious and rare essence. The Dhyana Mantra describes her to be four-armed, with a dark emerald complexion, full breasts anointed with red kumkum powder, and Mātaṅgī crescent moon on her forehead.
The Dhyana Mantra of Raja-matangi from the Purashcharyarnava describes Matangi as green in colour with the crescent moon upon her forehead. She wears jewellery and is Mātaṅgī on a jewelled throne. She has long hair, a smiling expression and intoxicated eyes, and wears a garland of kadamba flowers and various ornaments. Below Mātaṅgī navel are three horizontal folds of skin and a thin vertical line of fine hair. Matangi is often depicted with a parrot in her hands, representing speech.
The green complexion is associated with deep knowledge and is also the colour of Budha, the presiding deity of the planet Mercury who governs intelligence. She carries a skull and a sword in her two hands, and is offered leftovers.
According to the Shyamaladandakam, Matangi plays a ruby-studded veena and speaks sweetly. Liberation through shibari, dark desires through fire, love through the embrace of fears, light through shadows, Matangui is able to capture all that through Mātaṅgī lenses with the mastery that only a true artist has.
Biography Matangui started to get interested in photography in 2012 and since then she has been exploring all the corners of the human anatomy. Seated on an altar and flanked by two parrots, she represents Mātaṅgī 64 arts.
