YAKSHAGANA, is a traditional theatre form from Karnataka that combines dance, music, dialogue, costume, make-up, and stage techniques with a unique style and form. It typically takes several hours to prepare for a performance. These dolls are no different. The wood is first turned on a lathe and then applied the base glossy colour using the traditional lac-turnery technique. And then the body and face are painted with oil paints. Please note that the price indicated is for a single 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 the outside sealant is a varnish. Hence 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

10 inches height x 4 inches width. 

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 indicated is for a single doll only.
