Bay Island Driftwood Museum

The collections in the museum are from the serene beaches of the Islands, situated in Bay of Bengal. These islands are known as Andaman and Nicobar Islands or Bay Islands and hence the name Bay Island Driftwood Museum.

This museum, that displays, a unique collection of superior quality driftwood articles of very high artistic value, prepared through a rare and innovative modern art form, is functioning at Kumarakom a picturesque village in Kottayam district of Kerala, the South Western state of India, which is one of the most remarkable tourist spots in the country with its enchanting scenic beauty of back waters. A visitor
would find here a collection of root sculptures of various shapes and designs. They represent the collection of art works by Mrs. Raji Punnoose, a retired teacher.

During her professional tenure in the tiny green islands of bay of Bengal, she used to pick up pieces of driftwood deposited by the sea in the shores, comprising twisted tree trunks, stumps, roots, twigs etc, which had potential transformation to sculptures with marginal efforts. Every cyclone brought back many things to the shore as it washes away from it. Some of these wood pieces and roots were centuries old, and having drifted across the seas they became more resilient. Having traversed vast distances, what is left of a tree is its sturdiest part which has weathered much inclemency. The picked up pieces were cleansed, dead parts removed, scraped and trimmed to conform to the shape she had in mind. In the course of the process, it so happened, the Nature's original designs could come out more forcefully, evocatively and permanently. Many of these pieces resemble birds, animals, reptiles, amphibians and fishes. Shaping, scraping, seasoning, polishing, finishing and preserving are done with fierce dedication.

The admirers and connoisseurs of this rare and innovative form of art frequent the Bay Island Driftwood Museum. The student community finds the art form adopted in the preparation of the exhibits in the museum interesting and educative as the museum inculcates in them the qualities of imagination, creativity, originality and initiation to produce useful articles out of materials normally considered waste.

Kottayam

Kottayam is an important commercial center of Kerala, India, thanks to its strength as a producer of cash crops. Most of India's natural rubber originates from the acres of well-kept plantations of Kottayam, also home to the Rubber Board, One of the country's primary commodities board. Kottayam, among the state's more mountainous districts, provides some of Kerala's finest natural scenes sandwiched as it is between serene palm-fringed backwaters on the west and the Western Ghats on the east. Kottayam is an ancient town famous for its churches, especially the 700 years-old churches, the Cheria palli ('small church') with exceptionally lovely paintings over the altar and the Valia palli ('Big Church') perched on a picturesque hillock over a small cluster of houses. In the St.Marys Church Kuravilangad built in 355 AD there is an old bell which bears a hitherto undeciphered inscription. The mortal remains of the blessed Alphonsa and the Blessed Father Chavara are entombed at the St.Marys Church at Bharananganam and the St.Joseph's Monastery Church at Mannanam respectively. Thousands gather at these holy shrines during festive occasions. Pala town and Kanjirappally, nourished by the Meenachil and Manimala rivers respectively are centers of rubber plantations. The Ettumanoor Shiva Temple 12 km north of town, has exceptionally beautiful wall paintings and sculptures inside the temple. In the heart of Kottayam town is the much venerated Thirunakkara Mahadeva temple.
