NEW YORK---“Eyes of Time,” the latest exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is a 60-foot wall mural featuring Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction and rebirth, who has six arms, three legs, and three breasts. “Kali represents as certain kind of femininity that we don’t often see represented,” said Chitra Ganesh, who was born and raised in Brooklyn and has lived in Ditmas Park for the past 10 years.
