A Beautiful Display of Dasara Dolls at Sri Vani Education Centre.
Dasara is synonymous with the various dolls that are put up on display during the festival. For many households in Karnataka, these dolls are a matter of pride. But now, it’s not confined to people’s homes alone. The teachers at Srivani Education Centre have re-created scenes from the Ramayana, using miniature versions of mythological characters. A total of nine scenes from the Ramayana are currently on display at the school premises.
Adding more colour to this recreation of the epic is a rangoli portraying Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. “Each of these nine scenes come with a hand-painted background, with the dolls set up in the front. A visual delight for visitors, the teachers have put in a lot of effort to set up this installation, which took more than two weeks to complete,” says Meenakshi Pillai, the art and crafts teacher at the school.
