Artisans and sculptors from the Kumartuli neighbourhood of Calcutta make most of the Durga Puja idols. Over 10000 of these are made every year for the annual Durga Pujo celebrations. A number of idols are also exported to expat-Bengali communities across the world. Here a group of idols rest by the road side.
