The picture is of the idol of goddess Durga who is well celebrated by the people of bengal. Bengal is situated in india and the festival of the durga is a huge part of the bengali culture. The bengalis wait all year round for this festival. Its like chirstmas fo them. However, its celebrated for five whole days instead of one and with friends and family alike!
