On the day of Ganesh's birthday, this artisan was still busy cranking out clay Ganesh figures. Local clay was pressed into a two-sided mould, seams smoothed, and as a final touch - red & black beads applied for eyes, both for Ganesh and the elephant at the bottom. Although not as ornate or colorful as the plaster ones, such clay idols are much more environmentally friendly when the pieces are immersed into the ocean or other bodies of water.
