The artisans, with their keen eyes and shrewd hands, have mastered the art of woodworking and toy making. Flawlessly blending iconic Indian cultural symbols of life into objects of esthetic significance, this community is at least 600 years old. Every year as January nears, the Sankranti bustle arrives in the villages of India. As soaring colours and hearty laughter takes over the atmosphere, the Bommala Koluvu display becomes the star of the celebration. Offering eternal narratives of the Indian past, the credit entirely goes to the eager artists of the Kondapalli community. Owning their difficulties and continuing to create their priceless handicrafts, the Kondapalli artisans are genuinely inspirational.
