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 moulding 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 speciality 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 colour to the 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.
