Theme Artist :Susanta Paul

Theme & Idol Artist : Susanta Paul and Adhir Paul

Theme : Perspective (Different Point Of View)

Human beings have an unique ability to see and realise things or visuals in different ways. Perspective in visual art usually refers to representation of three-dimensional objects in two-dimensional artworks. The pandal is like an architectural drawing of an old mansion’s courtyard or thakur dalan but laid on its side, iron skeleton exposed, completely skewing the viewer’s perspective. The endeavour has been to convert the linear perspective from a different point of view of the architectural design of a conventional temple, into a three-dimensional panorama.

Nine boats, made by artisans of Balagarh village in Hooghly, have also been installed at the pandal, with special lights fitted to depict water flowing beneath them. They have also used the kantha stich or nakshi kantha made by an adivasi sibling. Even the Durga idol is holding the work of kantha stich and protecting it.

Chorebagan Sarbojanin Durgotsab Committee

Theme Artist :Bimal Samanta

Idol Artist : Subrata Mridha

Theme : Antarshakti

This year, Chorebagan Sarbojanin Durgotsab has depicted the essence of human willpower with the sheer use of glass bottles. Bottles, when unbroken, serve as a container and are a portrayal of the goodness in man. But broken glass is hurtful and shows the demonic power of injuring others. The inner power materialization and destruction has been skillfully shown by the theme artist.
