Many faces of Maa Parvathi?

I have seen maa parvathi (or lets say Kali ma) in a Kali kovil recently - one statue had a head of a lion and the other had the head of a horse. I have never seen or heard of these before. Have you? Is there any story behind these forms?

    Every major temple has a history(Sthala Purana) on why a particular diety is represented in a particular form and what's the meaning behind it. If you ask the temple preists, they would probably help you.
