    It was projected along with hundreds of images, including Cecil the lion, in an effort to spread awareness about a global cause.

    The images were meant to inspire people around the world to talk about the extinction of some of the world's most majestic creatures and do their part.

    The image of Kali was used because Android Jones wanted to provide a "fierce new avatar" in the fight against pollution, extinction, and the harm that Earth is enduring today.
