Bosepukur, Talbagan - Clay and Pottery

2011 Coverage

Theme: This year Bosepukur Talbagan have made the whole thing up with 'mati' or 'clay' There is a use of clay materials in various forms of shapes & sizes, especially pottery. The theme tried to convey the message that we all have been created from 'mati' that is, we all emerged from the soil and after our death we all become one with the soil. We can refer to Ma Sita here, who was found in a farm while ploughing because when we see the pandal even the idols of god & goddessess has been emerging from the potter's wheel. Even the 'pratima' has been completely decked up with clay.
