Deva Ganesha greeted us from the gate top. I could discern the theme would be on clay, my favorite.

Standing below the awning of the gate the huge welcoming mythical figure looked a bit awesome, but nevertheless it was a pleasing visual.

Inside, the small happy family caught my eye first. Lovely curves and soft colors. We grew up with Bengali clay art and didn't expect to meet such a beautiful piece all on a sudden.
