|CasualWalker’s Rating for Asuras – Swarna Kolu / Golu – Indian mythological Dolls & idols Exhibition :|
9.7 – Great / Excellent
Recently visited the Swarna Kolu / Golu, an Navarathri (Dussehra, Dasara) dolls and idols exhibition based on the Indian mythology Asuras. The exhibition is wonderfully organized by Shanthi Chandrasheker from Thejus.
It exhibited 72 massive collections of handcrafted Asuras miniature dolls ranging from Ravanan, Akasuran, Bhasmasuran, Kamsan, Kumbakarnan, Kakasuran, Thadagai, Mahishasuran, Naragasuran, Gajamukasura, Singamugan, Tharakasuran, Idumban and also characters like Saguni and Vaali. Most of the Asuras displayed depicts episodes from the Mahabharata, Ramayana and Skanda Purana.
It took over-elaborate two months of efforts to work on the Asuras list and create the storyboard to make the Asura’s figurines and backdrops. An exhibition like this is a great attempt to help the younger generation to easily understand the rich stories in our Indian mythology.
