Do you keep Golu at your home ? We do. It was a tradition that was once (I don’t even know when) started by my mother and for the last few years Preethi has been ardently keeping up with the tradition. In fact, I got to participate too last time when she wanted a 5 step Golu padi to be DIYed to be used every year. It was a fun project and I had fun making the flat pack Navratri steps. If you have not read the post or seen the video, you should do it now.

For this year, given that I was already making loads of lampshades, I wanted to do something unique for display. And that is how the Dasavataram Lampshade idea came about. Knowing that lifting off a design from Google is criminal, I approached Raji Madhu to help me with a design. After dabbling between Durga and Dasavatharam, she finally decided to do one on Dasavataram. While Raji Madhu warrants a full post, I want to just mention that she is a very talented fabric designer who is passionate about art. And it reflects in the interest she shows in imparting that talent to kids and youngsters through her art class.


Less than a week is all that it took and the design was ready on paper. She was so pepped up and the excitement rubbed off on me too. And so, here’s the final outcome. She loved it. I loved it.


Now, I am looking forward to show this off to all my guests. No one really noticed my golu padi last year. So this time, I am gonna make them notice this. And guess what ? You too can own this unique lampshade. All you need to do is, go to the Woodooz Shop and book it online. We are also coming up with a digitally enhanced version of the original design which am sure you would love. You will have to wait for our first exhibition announcement for that :)

And guess what ? The lampshade has garnered amazing response and we have been shipping it to all parts of the country. Want to buy this interesting and unique lampshade ? Click here and make your booking NOW.
