AUTHENTIC CRAFT. CREATED IN INDIA

Burdwan Wood Craft Dolls (Set of 2). From ancient times, dolls have been customarily crafted for religious purposes and believed to possess spiritual, magical and ritual value. This is very evident from discoveries made from excavations in the Indus valley. Potter communities nestling around these excavation sites still make such dolls. In addition to clay, artisans also create colourful dolls made of wood, metal, sponge wood, jute and palm leaf. There was a time when wooden doll making was monopolized by the carpenter communities of Bengal. These dolls were earlier made in various districts of Bengal, but is today mostly restricted to Burdwan and its satellite areas. The dolls are carved from white teak wood and then coloured. Some of the popular dolls in this range are the owl, bride, king & queen, Radha-krishna to name a few. With constant experimentation, the artisan community is now making utility and home décor products as well from this craft form, apart from these dolls.
