Marapachi Decore for Navarathri 2011

Hi All.

Marapachi dolls dressed as Panduranga Vittala and Rukmabai.As Panduranga stands on a brick, have wrapped the base of the doll in velvet paper to give the brick effect. Hope you all like the same. Your valuable comments awaited.

Thanks you all for your lovely comments and wishes. The crown of vitalla is a metal one. Got a plain crown and stuck a few Kundan stones on the same to give it a bright look. The back prabhavli was done using cardboard and velvet paper. Just cut the shape and then got to stitch a few sequences and beads on the same.
