Tell us about your Golu
May the blessings of Goddess Durga be with everyone. This is my first experience of the Divine Presence ( Bommai Kolu) the festival of Hinduism. I have displayed the dolls in 5 steps. We made the steps at home with wood. Traditionally a Kalasham ( ceremonial pot with a coconut on top smeared with haldi) is placed and worshipped for 9 days. In the first few steps, I have placed God figures like Dashavatharam, Ashtalakshmi, .... Last 2 steps represent functions like orchestra, chettiar set, marapachi bommai ( decoarated by me) and regular household activities. The Ganesha idol on the second step from top is made by me with quilling paper and so are the other dolls on the side table. I invite you all to see and enjoy our kolu. Namaskaram!!!
