Skilled craftsmen take care of the job of making complex head structure, using bamboo
splinters of different sizes and thickness, according to the requirement.
This art of making complex head structures and torsos is passed on from one generation to another just by involving youngsters in practice, without any written documentation.
Size of the head ranges from two feet to six feet. Accordingly the torso in same proportions.
Meanwhile the long bamboo splinters are folded and stuck in an open box structure so that the fibre takes the shape and do not break while making the final structure.
These folded splinters are then rolled into circular and semicircular forms to create concentric rings for the torso and skirt of the effigy. It’s a very important job supervised by the most skilled person, as this contributes to the final structure of the effigy.
The folding and tying of bamboo is done using wire and pliers.
Then these concentric rings are held by attaching vertically standing bamboo sticks,
exactly like latitudes and longitudes of earth, which gives it the final form.
