Tell us about your Golu
Our theme for the past 2 years has been marriage (engagement, reception and wedding ceremony), family (baby shower and the 1st birthday) and other events. In continuation with these themes, this year it has extended to Thottil Poduthal/ naming ceremony in the house and Mottai/Kaathani Vizha at the Kula Theivam temple.
The usual 7 stepped Golu was present this year with a display of various unique and special collections. Sections of last 2 years were also included.
There is a section of the Golu displaying the various festivals starting from Vinayagar Chaturithi, Perumal Thalu, Krishna Jayanthi and Navarathri (filled with Ganesh on 3 steps).
All of the dolls are in Indian attire which are custom designed and handmade using Barbie and Ken dolls complete with dressses, jewellery, banners, house furniture (some) and suitable lighting. Other handmade items include Seer Varisai, the setup of house, the temple, the marriage hall, etc.
