Workshop of the Gods

In the workshops of Kumartuli, a district of Kolkata, workers sculpt figures of female gods from straw and mud dragged out of the holy Hooghly River. These workshops are amazing - and with a little persistence you can walk amongst the workers as they piece together and paint the giant figures.
