Question

Idol  makers in Bengal  use rich soil found plentiful on the banks of the river Hooghly to make stunning religious figure of Goddess Durga. What type of soil do they use and why so?  [2 MARKS]


 


Solution

Reasoning out: 2 Marks

They use the rich clayey soil . Mixed with alluvial soil, this clayey soil
retains moisture and becomes very sticky when wet. Sticky dough becomes  easy for the sculptors to carve out idols . Furthermore  when dry , clayey soil is becomes so hard that baking becomes redundant. It is beause of these merits that Idol  makers in Bengal  use rich soil found plentiful on the banks of the river Hooghly.
