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 Sri. Shanthi Chandrashekar 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 depict episodes from the Mahabharata, Ramayana, and Skanda Purana.

It took over-elaborate two months of effort to work on the Asura 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 easily understand the rich stories in our Indian mythology.

Check out and enjoy my photo captures of Asuras – Swarna Kolu – and Dolls and Idols Exhibition in Chennai.
