Below is the original blog post:
~While I was wandering to the different cemeteries around Singapore, I came across this in a Hindu Cemetery. Looks like a ‘deity’ of some sort, painted on this tree and it is wrapped by a orange cloth. Looks frightening. If anyone out there, especially any Hindu readers would come to light on this ‘subject’, it would be much appreciated.

4 years later, I received an email from a 12 year old kid and he explains the painted face as such:
Hey there! I am a Indian and I'm just a 12 years old kid. I actually have been to this temple before and it is actually she is a deity. Her name is MayanaKaliamman( Full name)( She is also known as Sudukattu Kali or Mayana Kali ).
She is actually a female guardian of the cemetery. She is actually very powerful. By now there will be another tree similar to the female deity in the picture,and he is Mayana Muniswarar (Full name)( He is also known as ,Mayana Muni, Jada Muniswarar and also Jada Muni ). There are two deities in that tree.
Like I mention,Jada Muniswarar and Mayana Muniswarar. They are also the male guardian of the cemetery and the forest. There are another two female deities but I don't know who they are. Both of them are extremely strong and don't try to play tricks with them. This is all I know about them.Thanks!
As he has warned us, if any of you do dare to try your luck, please be my guest!
