Or snow-woman, to be exact. She's got the bangles, vermilion bindi and tikka on her forehead, necklaces, flowers in her hair, and a saree. The only thing missing is fresh jasmine for her hair; hard to find this time of year in Rochester, so plastic lilacs had to suffice.
Yes, I know, it's clear that this snow-woman never took my tutorial on How To Wear a Sari (or maybe forgot everything she learned?) But she did make an attempt at accessory color-coordination -- a key factor in Indian-wear.
This one is dedicated to all my Chennai buddies!
