Pondicherry Heritage Festival-Groves of Aiyaṉār
In sacred groves at the edges of settlements, Aiyanar deploys his army of cows, horses, and elephants of terracotta. They stand in wait, ready for him to mount, so that he may chase away maleficent forces that threaten to disturb the serenity of sleeping villagers after dark. This photographic exhibition is a reflection of the fragile and eerie beauty of such shrines, ancient and modern, that are spread across the length and breadth of the Tamil-speaking South.
