Photographer's Note

Village deities are the part of folk religion in South India. In this Ondiveeran temple in Tamil Nadu, the statutes of these soldiers are given as offering to the main deity. It is believed that these soldiers would accompany the main deity when he goes around village in the night in his horse. When the eyes are painted, a ceremony is observed.
