Didn’t have the handycam or the regular camera around when I took this one.
The white stuff, which I used to think of as thermocol is actually something called ‘shola’ and is a kind of tree sap which is fragile but hard enough for designs to be carved on it.
The tiaras, the jewellery is all made from shola and looked gorgeous and was painstakingly done by the potter-artisan for about 1 month prior to the puja.
