For ten days, India remembers the spirit of craftsmanship and celebrates the occasion of Navratri with the Bommala Koluvu procession of Kondapalli toys. These earthy toys originate in the lap of nature, as they are hand-carved out of Ankudu softwood sourced from the local forests of Andhra Pradesh. This impeccable Kondapalli toy depicts two hardworking women performing the task of pounding rice with a 'Rokali', the native word for a pounding stone. Reaching the peaks of creativity, the artisans of Kondapalli perform the much-needed task of bridging the gap between modern Indian art and the need for cultural portrayal in the mainstream scenario. For six centuries with care and passion, the Kondapalli craftsmen have come a long way through dedication and endurance. Finding new hope to survive in a fast-changing economy, the art of the Kondapalli craftsmen is being threatened by today’s times. However, art that is carefully personalized and crafted by hand has always occupied a special place for art lovers all across the globe. This Rokali Kondapalli toy carries a rich cultural theme observed across many Indian handicraft toys, celebrated for its deeply rooted sense of familiarity in the Indian context.
