Tell us about your Golu
I have been keeping golu for quite some years now. Here's a description of My 5- step Golu from top to bottom plus some tit bits...grass on the side
Top most Padi: Kalasam: A container of fertility- the Earth and the Womb both of which nurtures and nourishes life.
Manifestations of the same cosmic energy that creates, sustains and destroys - Raamar, Shivan and Parvathi, Perumaal and Thaayar, Maha Vishnu.
Second Padi from top: The ten avatars of lord Vishnu representing the endless cycle of birth and death.
Third Padi from top: Marriages - are about three things- Memories if togetherness, forgiveness of mistakes and a promise to never give up on each other + Ganesha- the remover of obstacles!
Lakshmi and Krishna - consort and incarnations of Maha Vishnu!
Fourth Padi from top: Baby Krishna - again incarnations of Maha Vishnu.
Bottom Padi: Chettiar and Mrs Chettiar, an adorable couple who represent the trader community.
Tit bits on the side: Animals and Birds - Part of nature + Covid -19 special - dolls wearing home-made masks and playing while following UK Government guidelines regarding Social distancing.
Golu festival is a lively melange of colourful dolls. Thank you for this opportunity.
