"Mahakal" was inspired by the Indian mythological writings of Bhagavad Gita. The title figure, a three headed creature, is a destroyer of worlds whose actions precedes the creation of a new world. Here, this mythological figure of another former British colony referenced by Gall brings about revolutionary change through destruction to the accepted place image of the Caribbean. In a description for the National Art Gallery acquisitions catalogue in 2006, Therese Hadchity summarized the work as "at once a call for the Caribbean to re-evaluate its identity, and for formerly colonized nations to unite. Mahakal, then, essentially becomes a metaphor, at many levels, for the return of the oppressed."
