Latest from Kumartuli – Kolkata
Color is making its way to the clay world of Kumartuli. In some workshops, Durga’s eyes have been painted. In others, the goddess patiently awaits a coat of paint. Though some idols have been draped in saris, the goddess’ long hair is but a single painted strand. Work is picking up pace at the craftsmen’s colony, where every turn brings one face to face with idols in various stages of completion.
