Kolkata: An month-long exhibition showcasing 30 artefacts on ‘Durga – The Divine Power’ will begin at the Indian Museum in Kolkata on Sunday.
A collection of statues, paintings, coins and other artefacts, in the possession of the museum, will be put on display at the exhibition, which will begin on Mahalaya — five days ahead of Durga puja, Museum Director AD Choudhury told PTI on Friday.
“We will project different sides of Goddes Durga — Durga as ‘Stree Shakti’, Durga as daughter, Durga as mother of Lord Ganesh, Durga as warrior goddess — at the exhibition,” he said.
The exhibition will mark the distinction accorded by UNESCO to Durga puja, highlighting the intangible heritage aspect, he said.
A terracotta Mahisashurmardini from Mathura, a stone Mahisashurmardini from Hyderabad, a Kalighat patachitra and Abanindranath Tagore’s ‘Ganesh Janani’ will be featured among the exhibits.
