Idol Making Workshops, Mumbai

The final call echoes through the alley and hands work faster. Limber hands and muscly tones work in sync to place the finishing touches on the idols of Lord Ganesha. From the smallest to the largest, clay and plaster sculptures are decked up in preparation for the largest Ganesh Festival parade in India. Starting from the workshops, follow the procession as devotees head to the beach to dissolve the idols and metaphorically, wash their sins away.
