Lotus Flower – Dashehra Diwali Mela
Commissioned by Manchester Indian Association.
This mesmerising beautiful giant Lotus Flower was created for the Dashehra Diwali Mela celebrations in Manchester town centre. The flower is pulled on a trolley and slowly opens and closes.
October 2013 saw the streets of central Manchester light up with a lantern procession and celebration for Dashehra Diwali Mela. Organised by The Manchester Indian Association, supported by Manchester City Council, this event was a contemporary celebration of the festivals of Dashehra and Diwali and offered the chance to experience Indian culture in the heart of Manchester.
