Navaratri series Day 4: Kaumāri🙏🏼❤️
🎶” Kaumāri aval mayil vāhanathil…”🎶 -Janani Jagath Karani, Dance Drama by SDN🙏🏼
Kaumāri is the Shakti of Lord Karthikeya (Muruga) or Kumara. Also known as Kumari, Kartikeyani and Ambika, She mounts the beautiful peacock and is sometimes depicted six-headed like Kartikeya. She is usually portrayed with four hands holding a Vel (spear), axe, a Shakti (power) or Tanka (silver coins) and bow. Dressed in a red garment, Goddess Kaumāri destroys bad temper in a devotee who worships Her. 🙏🏼
P.S: Kaumāri Devi’s skin colour is not mentioned specifically, so I painted Her in light green because She can also be considered a form of Valli, who is usually portrayed having a light green colour, in most paintings.
Done using Camlin Acrylic paint on Watercolour Sheet 🙏🏼 (modelled on a Bharathanatyam dance pose).

      Hello, Namaste

      Kaumari devi skin color is red.

      In Traditional Nepal dance in Kathmandu Valley (Nepal mandal). You will find dance of kaumari along with other Ashtamatrikas.

      There’s kaumari lyrics describes her.
      It goes like

      Kaumari Rakta Varna Bha
      (Goddesses Kaumari whose skin is red like blood)

      Shakti hasta Bhayanaki
      (With powerful hand, she who is fierceful)
