The highly respected art of Kondapalli toymaking begins its marvellous journey in the hands of artisans who have endured the changing tides of time. On local softwood, these craftsmen carve out the toy and render oil colours to the surface after a coat of Aakra is applied. In exquisite detail, the women's sarees, the facial features and the motifs all add a touch of wholeness to the toy.

A shift from industrial art to handcrafted arts is seen in modern Indian homes. Authentic pieces like these are treasures to patrons of art because they come from areas still affluent in preserving culture and integrity. Like always, Artsytribe bridges the gap between the persistent makers of art and the dedicated audience of handicraft with this memoir of farming from Kondapalli.

With gratitude in their manner and a song on their lips, the joyous farmers of Andhra plough the field and tend to their crops, never straying too far from nature.
