The Mysore Dasara celebrations is the state festival of Karnataka. A much awaited annual event that is attended by both, the locals and tourists. The highlight of these celebrations is the procession on the tenth day that includes decorated elephants, horses and music bands.

Channapatna is long since known for creating dolls depicting the Mysore Dasara celebrations. The wood is first turned on a lathe and then applied the base glossy colour using the traditional lac-turnery technique. And the body and face are then painted with oil paints. Please note that the price indicated is for one unit only.

This is a part of our initiative to revive the traditional doll stories of Channapatna, Karnataka.  Each piece is made of wrightia tinctoria or hale mara, a safe and naturally seasoned medicinal plant wood. And they have been painted with safe, non-toxic colours. However these are not suitable for children. Please note that the colours may vary a little bit from the one in the pics.

Any perforations, bubbles, etc found on the wood are natural to the hand painting process and should not be considered a defect.

DIMENSIONS

9 inches height x 7 inches length. 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS 

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. 

Please note that the price is for one unit only.
