12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Culture and the Arts
Pebble Art

Diwali is an Indian festival of lights and colors. During this festival people worship the goddess 'Laxmi'...the goddess of wealth. While doing so, people often draw a small pair of feet in front of their house, with the believe that, those are the feet of the god herself. Those feet drawn with the belief that the goddess will step inside the house and will shower the host with blessings of wealth. While sitting near a river, the pebbles gave me a feeling to create one such pair of feet...and to wish others a very Happy Diwali.
