Photographer's Note

I took this shot when the Potter is busy with painting Goddess Durga's eyes at Kumortuli in Kolkata...

Only 2 days left to come our biggest festival Durga Puja :)...Durga Puja is the most important festival of Bengali in West Bengal state of India...I am also a bengali guy :)

Kumortuli (also spelt Kumartuli, or the archaic spelling Coomartolly) (Bengali: কুমোরটুলি) is a traditionally potters’ quarter in northern Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta), the capital of the east Indian state of West Bengal. By virtue of their artistic productions these potters have moved from obscurity to prominence. This Kolkata neighbourhood, not only supplies clay idols of Hindu gods and goddesses to barowari pujas in Kolkata and its neighbourhoods, but a number of idols are exported.
