KOLKOTA INDIA – Today we went down on the Ganges to a neighborhood that specializes in Hindu religious images. The process starts with a bamboo matrix that is fleshed out with straw. Artisans then apply multiple coats of Ganges mud, which is what actually makes the statues holy. They are then sanded and painted and decorated.

Day 3053 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
