These dolls are part if our efforts to revive the traditional doll traditions of Channapatna. The craft has been popular since decades to create dolls for the navartri/dasara festival. Each piece is made of wrightia tinctoria or hale mara, a safe and naturally seasoned medicinal plant wood. The wood is first turned on a lathe and then applied the base glossy colour using the traditional lac-turnery technique. And then they have been painted over with safe, non-toxic oil-paints. However these are not suitable for children. Please note that the colours may vary a little bit from the one in the pics.
The price is separate for each size.
small ~ 4 inches tall x 1.75 inches base dia
large ~ 6 inches tall x 3 inches base dia
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.
