Hindu Deities Galore

I came across these glorious images of some Hindu festival on Flickr today and couldn’t wait to share them. There are no descriptions and I even emailed the photographer inquiring as to what the hell these things were but I have yet to hear back.

They are marvelously grand and saturated with color. Some of the bizarre forms are a tad blurry, but you still get a taste of the monumental nature of these cultural (or are they strictly religious?) monuments. Check out all 92 photos here.

ADDENDUM: I got this from the photographer today (Nov. 19) in response to to inquiry about the images, “thanks for having a look at my photos!!! all the photos are from kolkata,india during durga puja festival”
