A five-foot-tall fibre idol of Goddess Kali, crafted in the lanes of Kolkata's potters' colony Kumartuli, is set to adorn the British Museum, which is bringing together sculptures, sacred objects and artworks from across the globe for an exhibition highlighting the many faces of feminine power.

The 35-kg idol of the goddess will be in the company of Egyptian deity Sekhmet and Greek's Athena at the museum.
