Navarathri Golu

          These are some of the work I did for this year Golu at Avvai.



This origami lotus in a pond is a miniature pond of Madurai Meenakshi temple.(Porthamarai kolam)

This is a scene for a story where the crane refuses to eat the fishes that nibble on the sages who take bath in the pond. I added a quilled lotus to the pond.The fish I cut from thermocol and added silver glitters for the scales.

It became my job to set up these steps . It has five stories for which I have created the scenes and put them up. Though we have our assigned work  , we take lot of help from others.This is just a small part of the golu, the actual story for this year about the Nayanmar , Thirunavukarasar (Appar) covers one half of the hall and two other steps form the Main golu. 


       This is a scene again from Madurai Meenakshi temple where lord Shiva dances in a silver stage.(I made this using thermocol wrapped in silver paper.

Along with mythological stories we also have fairy tales and moral stories. This is a tower for Rupenzal I made. I have quilled some creepers on the sides of the wall.

This is the tree I made for the scenes on the steps. I made three of them. They are made of thermocol and painted with acrylic paints.
