doll dressed up for golu

lataravi's picture

it is a doll madeup of pop with only Head, Hands And Upper body only.
I have placed the upper body and head on an iron stand, stuffed with news paper to give it proper curves and wrapped a complete 6yards sari around the stand, putting my jewellery on it to cover the joints at neck.
I am sharing this with you all so that you can also try it out at your place.
Any queries about this is most welcome.

Very nicely dressed to invite guests! What is the height of the doll? Also I think she needs a name. I'll call her aruNalata as she wears a red sari and as she is a ward of latAjI.

Regards! - mOhana

Please explain what is golu.

Lata's picture

Here is my quick and short explanation:

Golu is a arrangement of dolls on steps displayed during a Hindu festival called Navrathri - a festival of nine nights that is celebrated during the Fall season. People who celebrate Navrathri invite women and girls over to share the blessings of the Goddesses. Please click on the tag called "golu" and go over the various photos and you'll find many explanations regarding this significant fall celebration that will offer you a complete understanding of this topic.
