Bengal jute has long been a popular fibre used to create a variety of products, including utility items, furniture, accessories, and home decor. One such highly desired item is jute dolls. Although jute dolls have been around for a while, there has been a significant shift in the way they are made over the past five to six years. These dolls are made by twisting jute threads, giving them the desired shape. Small pieces of jute fibre have been colored with natural dyes to enhance the features and details of the dolls.
Made with efficiency and earnest care by Bolpur artisan Gourango Das, this particular artifact is one of a kind. This unique piece is shaped like an owl at the top and like Lord Ganesha near the bottom. The owl is considered the ‘bahon’ of Goddess Laxmi in Hindu mythology and stands for the goddess herself at times. Laxmi and Ganesha are often worshipped together in houses or shops as it is believed to usher in health, wealth, prosperity, and luck.
