Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subhadra Deities (4" High)
The arms are made from a separate piece of wood so there is a join between the arms and the main body of the deities. Sometimes due to the wood expanding or contracting because of temperature changes, etc, a small crack appears in the paint over this joint. This is very easy to repair with a little white paint over the crack. It is part of the worship of Lord Jagannatha to repair small things like this on the Jagannatha deities.
