Dollu-Ulluka The owl (‘Ulooka’) is associated with the Goddess of Wealth – Lakshmi and having one around the house is a harbinger of material comfort and it is traditionally found in village homes. Wood carving was started in a village in Bengal, India, a few centuries ago by a group of talented artists called ‘Sutradhar’ (woodcarver).

The talented villagers carve owls from blocks of locally available wood - Mahogany and paint them using bright colors. The carving is done by the men folks and the paintings by the women folks of the village.
