Third generation Indian statue makers siblings Benzony (L) and Minglesh Sequeira (R) work on statues at their home and workshop at Small Giriz village some 70 kms north of Mumbai on September 3, 2012. 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.
