MOVING STA­TUES

Vocable (Anglais) - - L’actualité En Images -

An In­dian dai­ly wage la­bo­rer stands in front of a stu­dio be­side fi­ber­glass sta­tues of Mo­ther Te­re­sa, cen­ter and Swa­mi Vi­ve­ka­nan­da, right, in Kol­ka­ta, In­dia. Made from the threads of glass, fi­ber­glass is crea­ted by for­cing mol­ten glass through a sieve that spins it in­to threads. Fi­ber­glass is an ideal ma­te­rial for large sculp­tures be­cause it is light en­ough that people can move sta­tues made from it wi­thout the help of a crane. Fi­ber­glass is al­so a much less ex­pen­sive me­dium. The dai­ly wage la­bo­rers earn In­dian Ru­pee 400 to 1000 per day de­pen­ding on the sea­son by trans­por­ting idols from stu­dios to va­rious places.
