With an excellent eye for detail, the Kondapalli artisan sculpts the various onlookers of the wedding. The precision with which the artisan carves out every single element adds to the final look of the masterpiece. The handicraft is rendered with a vibrant Indian palette of reds, yellows and greens, reminding one of the glorious association this nation has with brightness.

This Kondapalli bomma depicts the sacred bond of marriage, with the bride and the groom at the centre and the entourage of the priest and family witnessing the ritual.
