In Pics| Take a peek at the Eco-friendly Ganesha Idols made from clay at this Ahmedabad Fair
Across the city, vibrant Ganesh idols are available for purchase, but it's crucial to consider the environmental impact. Many of these idols, crafted from materials like POP (Plaster of Paris), can harm nature when immersed in water after the Ganesh festivals.
To address this concern, the government, in collaboration with the Gujarat Pottery Art And Rural Technology Institutions, has organized a Maati Murti fair dedicated to showcasing and selling Eco-friendly Ganesha idols made from clay. These biodegradable idols not only pose no harm to the environment but are also safe for humans. What's more, they can be easily dissolved at home after the festivities, promoting cleanliness and health-conscious practices.
Moreover, this initiative provides a platform for local sculptors to display and sell their exquisite and imaginative creations, supporting their talent and artistry. Let’s check out the beautiful clay idols from at the fair.
