View of a Durga Puja Pandal (Final Stage) – Lake Market, Kolkata

Close-up view of Lord Shiva sitting in the meditation posture atop the pedestal. The pedestal is shaped in the form of a “damru”, the hour glass shaped musical instrument carried by him. LED lamps are placed all around the “damru” top as a decoration to be lighted up at night. The snakes adorning his arms and neck signify the problems and worries of life through which one needs to keep composed.
