Adieu

End of the series on Kolkata. Thought to finish it off with another shot of a slightly different, minimalist idol of Durga Puja. This one was seen at the lobby of a restauarant. 


Up next, will be a short series on Malaysia, captured during a recent whirlwind trip.

Very nice shot Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thanks Anupam
I like that there's a different tool or icon in each hand!!
Ayush Basu: Thank you Elizabeth. They are actually different weapons, just as shown in the previous posts. It is just a different sculpture form, perhaps a tad low on realism

Many hands make light work...or so they say
Ayush Basu: According to the legend, it sure worked fine in the case of Goddess Durga and there was much to happy about it.

Wonderful series and it shows a different culture. That is what I like about SC. I travel the world while I am having breakfast. Thank you for showing.
I assume the hands with the different contents all have a meaning.
Ayush Basu: you are quite right about that Astrid. Each of the hands bear a different weapon as Goddess Durga, this character, was summoned for a very martial purpose. Perhaps this shows a more complete picture http://ayush.shutterchance.com/image/2012/11/12/durga-puja-aka-navratri/

This one is quite restrained - if I have the right Goddess I have seen Durga with 20 arms, essential for keeping spiritual order in the world.
Ayush Basu: I am sure there are several versions and it seems to be acceptable to have certain artistic/ creative experimentation.
A striking and fascinating image Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thanks Fred, thanks for the visit!
