unfinished clay sculptures - no hands (india)

Unfinished clay sculptures on road side (India)

I think those statues are some Hindu deities.­

I guess that the faces and hands, which are the hardest parts, are pre-cast pieces used in each statue.­

Photos taken in India in 2013

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
