Kumortuli-Urban Sketch


1 in stock


Kumortuli or Kumartuli is a potter’s quater in northern Kolkata. The potters have been sculpting the idols of gods & goddessess since time immemorial.  Although the look & feel of Kumortuli is age old & very humbling, the sculpotors not only manufacture & fashion  the idols for various Indian festivals in India, they also export them.

The sketch depicts the idol of Goddess Kali, who has been completely embelished & fashioned. She is waiting to be carried by her devotees from the potter’s quarter.

There is another small & very sketcy idol of Kali right beside the big one. She has been placed on a cart, carried by her devotees from another community or area seated around her & holding her.

She is being revered by her devotees from all walks of life at various capacities. She enjoys the material relativity that is offered to her & the devotion/rituals that remain sacrosanct across class.
