TO GO WITH India-religion-society-art,FEATURE by Rachel O'Brien This photo taken on September 3, 2012 shows third generation Indian statue maker Minglesh Sequeira (R) instructing a workman to select a particular type of tree trunk from a pile at the courtyard in their home and workshop in Small Giriz, some 70 kms north of Mumbai. For when a photograph is not enough, the Sequeiras -- a third-generation family of religious effigy makers -- operate a successful sideline to bereaved relatives who want a three-dimensional tribute to their lost loved ones. Using old photographs to capture a likeness, the statues and busts are made of wood or fibreglass, coloured with paint and completed with realistic glass eyes.
