There is so much encouragement for artisans during this festival.
Artisans from different districts of Tamil Nadu make the beautiful idols,dolls and toys made from clay,wood,ceramic and paper-mache for sale. It is a wonderful sight to see the colourful items lined up on the walk ways and in shops for selling prior to the celebration.
It was fun capturing the colourful display of dolls from a famous street in Mylapore at Chennai/Madras.
