Makeup Artist

A busy artist. Durga puja is the biggest festival of west bengal. It is the festival of joy, a festival of good overcomes evil. Durga (deity) represents Good and Holiness and The Asura represents bad and evil. Idols of Durga along with other gods and Asura also worshiped during the puja. Kumortuli Patuapara is a small area in Kolkata,the home of some poor artists who are famous for making idols with clay and bamboo etc.Before durgapuja they were very busy due to the excessive demand of their idols. I saw an artist was working on a Durga idol. He was carefully doing his work. It was like the idol was cooperating with him and patiently waiting to finish his work just like a makeup artist doing his creative things on his model. It was very beautiful to see.
