Durga the popular Hindu deity ,revered for her courage and bravery and as protector watches over her people in Kolkatta . Every year they hold ‘Narvarti’  a hugely popular puja festival in North East India .You find effigies of her everywhere there but particularly towards festival time in October. I bought this one in an antique shop I’m not sure it is really that old but it is different from the commercially made ones of today .Heavier in weight and particularly striking .Handcrafted from paper and glue ( papier-mâché ) and painted in vivid colour .It’s it large so although described as a mask it is actually an amazing wall decoration !
Size :45cm x45cm Appx
