Darkness and Light do Coexist

Dakness and Light do Coexist
The plastic cover over the idol head prevents sticking of insects and dust particles on the wet paint.
Last year I had visited idol artisans' workshop several times before Durgapuja to capture making of those colorful and lively idols in several phases, from preparing the clay to painting those sculptures. If you have been to this photo blog before you must have viewed at least one photo story regarding the same. Otherwise also, you can access them anytime from the category menu or by clicking these links below:
Today's photographs are taken from my Durgapuja 2014 idol-making archive and the photo theme "Darkness and Light do Coexist" seems to fit both of them just perfectly. Darkness and light do coexist otherwise our characters would have been either black or white, instead of shades of gray. Leaving aside life and philosophy, without the harmonious coexistence of light and darkness even a photograph can not be born. Let them coexist in equilibrium for eternity...
Dakness and Light do Coexist
Idols are yet to get their vision, clothes and color. Yet they look lively and so powerful!
