Hand written description of the image of Badra Kali from Halebid, the most wrathful form of the goddess, depicted on folio 54. The folio is taken from an album of 156 drawings (185 folios) chiefly of architecture and sculpture in S. India, dated 1803-08. The drawings depict specimens of architecture mainly from Kolar, Sravana Belagola, Conjeeveram and Shimoga and sculpture from Halebid (ff. 52-68), Amritapura and various Jain monuments. Some drawings are by MacKenzie himself, others by his assistant surveyors and draftsmen, including H. Hamilton and J. Newman.
