Craft works – by my mom

Photo0900My mom is a very creative person. These are some of her works which were done almost 20 to 25 years back. Most of them were in closed cup boards all these years. All dolls and creatures are as fresh as they were done and are well-arranged in a new showcase.

I only attempted an easy one (a small green parrot) and lost it too. My mom doubts if she can do any of these now. Good old crafts to be treasured. Some of the close up pictures as follows.

A vinayagar idol with lamps (kuthu vilakku) surrounding the idol.
