In India, Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great zest. Every year thousands of devotees bring home the idol of their beloved God and worship him with utmost dedication. But every year, this very grand celebration of human faith leads to pollution of seas and rivers, as thousands of big and small Lord Ganesha idols are immersed in these water bodies.
Taking note of this, a 29 year old sculptor – Dattadri Kothur came up with a phenomenal idea, the “Tree Ganesha”. Using his understanding of natural clay, Kothur created clay based Lord Ganesha idols with seeds hidden in his belly. Made by hands, every Ganesha idol is made with completely natural ingredients which make it easy to dissolve and the seeds begin to germinate once the Lord’s idol fully blends with the soil.
