Manasa’s Story

Manasa, goddess of snakes, worshipped mainly in Bengal and other parts of northeastern India, chiefly for the prevention and cure of snakebite and also for fertility and general prosperity. As the protector of children, she is often identified with the goddess Shashti. She is also celebrated in a variety of songs, dances, and dramas in the villages. Manasa may be related to the nagas, legendary half-human, half-cobra figures in India.

This piece of willow tree wood was found close to Iacub Lake, alongside the small Iacub channel, in the Danube Delta. It was a quiet summer evening, from a rainy period with a mild wind, which kept most of the mosquitoes afar. Evening birds were singing and probably thousands of frogs were accompanying.

The Crafting Process

This piece of wood was not alive when we cut it.

It needed cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding. It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.
