Birth of Creation is a depiction of God creating the sun and the moon. God is depicted in female form since all life enters the world only through woman. She wears the mask of death to imply the necessary relationship between both creation and destruction, life and death. Many hindu gods are not only the god of one thing but they are also god of the opposite aspect as well. This is a recognition of these aspects connection to each other. you cannot have one indendent of the other.
