This sculpture is from Thanjavur district and bbeloggs to 14th century AD(about 700 yrs old!!!)
'Kali' is the ferocious form of the divine mother worshipped by Hindus.She is the goddess of time and the ultimate transformation of life 'death'.Though represented with the fiercest features,she is a symbol of feminine power and energy.She destroys the attachments and ignorance that causes 'the fear of death'
