PAPER SCULPTURE OF RAVANA
India a nation of a traditional culture .in India people live busy in work of traditional festival or that’s celebration work. It is a real culture sound of INDIA. In India we have mixed culture of many religions but we live like a family with this different culture of religions .
For example I want to share some for your notice . when Islamic people are get busy in celebration of marriage in that marriage Hindu cook are cook to food for them I saw it in my city many time . and when Hindu people are celebrate to festival of Holi , Deepawli and Dhashhara , before this festival many Islamic family member are live busy in preparation of that festival products , on Holi they are create color for Hindu families , on Deepawli they are create small atom and some more light creating product we are saying to that in Hindi PATAKHA , On Dashahara some Islamic craft mans are create big size paper sculpture in form of Ravana look.
Ravana was a devil character of RAMAYAN , in Hindu religion . so on Dashahra day Hindu family burn to paper sculpture of Character Ravana for remove to negativity of society .so all India is celebrate to this Dadhahra festival by true art work of Islamic craft mans.
That same story was with paper sculpture of Ravana . I saw a very senior Islamic carft man was guiding to juniors for right craft work . I saw there sculpture of Ravana was in three parts head, mid part of body and lags . that all parts were very colorful and decorated by fine craft work of Islamic family of Utter Pradesh , INDIA.
I were went there with my camera . so I were shoot to that live craft work of paper sculpture of RAVANA . there I were shoot that craft work and that’s final fixing process for DASHAHARA celebration. That was a very challenging work for craft mans. I saw how to they were fixed that three paper sculpture by help of a big crane . when a crane was pulling to big size sculpture in that movement I were observed lots of tens on face of craft mans, because there one mistake of anyone could damaged to one month craft work or thats labor . so that was tens movement for craft man . here in visuals you will observe to that tens movement of craft mans.
I were shoot that live craft and engineering performance for preparation of festival celebration .that was a story photography work of myself at Maharaja Karni Shingh Stadium . today is Dashahara festival in INDIA and here in INDIA Hindu families are busy in celebration of this festival so that’s true sound is clicking in my mind for this true visuals story of past .
So here am sharing and I said to that story, paper sculpture of Ravana..
