This year Snowpark is installing 3D Maa Durga Idol of Ice from 22nd September till 31st October 2017.The size is 13’ x 10’.Snow park will also have Dandiya on Ice.
The inspiration behind 3D Ice Durga is both Mythical and environmental . Mythically Goddess Durga lives at Mount Kailashin the Himalayas with her consort Shiva, so when she visits her paternal household with her children, we want to welcome the Goddess in her natural surrounding which is snow bound, so that she does not miss her husband. Snow here signifies Shiva.
Environmentally we want to raise about the issue of Global Warming. We want to sensitise the issue by making people realise the importance of Snow caps that are melting and encourage them to take up a sustainable approach. Our idol is totally eco friendly and organic.
Speaking on the occasion , Mr Sunil Kumar Agrawal , Managing Partner said ‘ We are happy to present to the people of Kolkata 1st time ever a 3D Idol of Maa Durga. We live in a world where we are overusing the resources of mother earth . Our aim is send a message to all about environmental conservation.’
The entrance cost is Rs 499/- per person.The charges include the costs of jackets , gloves and boots.
