One cannot stress enough the significance of the Dasavatara tale on the morphology of Indian culture. This theme borrows the intellect of our ancestors and depicts the fascinating evolution of man, millennia before Darwin's theory of evolution was proposed. It captures centuries of the divine, manifesting into various biological forces. The Kondapalli toy artisan pays tribute to the spiritual genius of India by capturing the timeless story in wood, for the world to cherish. Growing up, the theme of Dasavataralu is widespread across television, books, and hymns, making a mark on generations across the country. The quality of artistry and the unique take on toymaking makes this iridescent toy the ideal fit for home decor and gifting. Having all the ten incarnations in one piece is a rarity, making the piece exceptional in its craft and meaning. The ethnic glory of this Kondapalli toy turns heads and instantly becomes the star of any interior, with rustic colors and unique design. This sublime handicraft is a depiction of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu namely Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, Parashurama, Rama, Krishna, Balaram or Buddha, and Kalki. The humble artisans of Kondapalli take immense pride in the history of their community and aim to spread the joys of authentic living in a chaotic world. In a country with such unfathomed knowledge, handicraft is slowly lagging in the tides of changing times. Restoring the craft to its original state of glory, we present to you this Kondapalli masterpiece. This handicraft is a depiction of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu namely Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, Parashuram, Rama, Krishna, Balaram (or Buddha), and Kalki. Each figurine is carved out of a single piece of wood making it strong and light in weight. The pride of India lies in her flowing ocean of history. From the icecaps of Kashmir to tropical Kanyakumari, the tale of Vishnu's ten incarnations is a hugely influential legend, playing a central role in the country's religion and lore. History and spirituality are inseparable − two tributaries of the same cascade. The 'Incarnations of Vishnu' is etched into time as India's Elysian tale of evolution. Unheard of in modern tales of manufacture, local Indian artisans follow the steps of their elders, treading and molding raw wood with careful hands − giving true meaning to the word "art". One such technique of handicraft hailing from Andhra Pradesh is Kondapalli toymaking. The specialty of the toy lies in its spiritual significance and the craftsmanship skill it indicates. The local Kondapalli artisan who holds a log of timber in his hand is filled with a warm sense of pride as he commemorates his infinite faith. This vernacular-themed wooden toy adds a taste of 'being Indian' to your home - something to bring along from fertile villages to frantic urban settlements. The extravagant curio serves as a wall piece, adding originality and color to space. Kondapalli toys of culturally rich themes make appearances in Sankranti 'Bommala Koluvu' festivities. The Dasavatara toy is a sheer symbol of excellence in the field of handicraft. It displays the elegant persona of its beholder with a marriage between the estranged elements of craft and mythology. Rescuing the traditional art forms of India from impending doom, we make it our motive to popularise these timeless toys. We have three variants at 3 Inches, 4 Inches and 6 inches in height. We can make the idols at 9 or 12 inches each per order.
