photoblog image Saraswati

Saraswati

A second picture from the potter's area in Kolkata known as Kumortuli. Here you can see a bit more of the Saraswati idols in production. As the goddess of music and the arts, she is portrayed here in the customary manner with her musical instrument.

[Note: For more info on this place and these idols see the previous day's photo here.]

So this is where god is made. Joking apart. I love the way these people make there face... They always look nothing else but motherly.

Shop window dolls must also have originated from here, with that wan smile smile I see the nearest one is trying to keep you from taking her picture.
Hm... I thought I was the Goddess of music and the arts.
The darker background makes these lovely statues stand out very well Charles.
Fabulous detail & good choice of depth of field
