A semi-circular background called the ek-chala traditionally covers the idols of the five gods and goddesses and the demon Mahisasura, in the Durga Pujo pandals of Calcutta. Here an artist puts together decorative pieces of the ek-chala, a night before the durga puja festival. The pieces come packed in a box and have to be assembled on the base surface.
