The Channapatna craft is traditionally associated with making dolls for the Dasara festival, many of which imitated the daily village life around them. Over the years, many of these traditional dolls stories were lost in the glitz and glamour of their contemporary machine made counterparts. We have tried to revive many of these tradiitonal dolls as they used to be made decades ago. Please note however that the colours used are not natural dyes. They are handpainted with non toxic colours. However these are best suited as decorative objects and not suitable for kids.
The scene depicted here is that of a woman and her daughter at the village well, drawing water for their household chores, the traditional way.
Not to be washed. To clean use a mildly damp cloth. Avoid blows against hard surfaces. Please note that wood being a natural material reacts differently to atmospheric changes which is beyond our control.
