Krishnas to Villagers

Once again, kolu dolls fill the streets surrounding the Kapaleeshwarar Temple in Mylapore, Chennai. Stall after stall sells these colorful dolls during the festival of Navartiri. From whimsical blue Krishnas and Hindu chariot processions, to village scenes and family members all gathered around a TV, shoppers could find at least some items that they didn't yet have in their collection. Because each stall had slightly different ones (and of varying painting quality), it was helpful to visit at least a few stalls before making a decision.

I made this image a bit larger so you can peek around the stall. Which one(s) would you buy?
