After my exploration around the pottery treasures of L & P Art School, my attention was diverted to this epic Warhol inspired wall of famous and infamous faces. I could only recognise the 12 most obvious ones.
I continued around the school. There was some more abandoned terra-cotta work. Happy to be chilling against a wall under the monsoon rains.
Big black pots.
A dangerous looking sculpture.
And numerous white stone statues. This photo gives you a glimpse at the unique little open air studios that each of the students get to work in. Sadly no amount of open airiness is going to save them from the cruelty of India’s crippling summer heat.
I passed by that creepy cat again and was headed for the exit when one last little area of pottery caught my attention. Amongst the bits and pieces/general junk there was an unloved god deity amongst raw pieces of clay.
A pot so bad it’s good.
And a poor god that has been abandoned amongst some raw pieces of red clay.
Part III — the terrific trip home — is coming real shortly.
