The famous scene from Mahabharata where Lord Krishna passed on his knowledge about the great war to Arjuna, is hand carved beautifully into this handicraft.
History narrates to us the most exquisite tale of righteousness. Sunken skin-deep into the existence of the ancient Sanatan Dharma, the Mahabharata is undoubtedly the single most influential work in Indian literature and mythology. It has continued to inspire generations of artists, poets, musicians and politicians alike.
The Kondapalli Toy artisan, hailing from Andhra Pradesh, is a remarkable example of hope for modern India, where iconic cultural practices are slowly vanishing into nothingness. This glorious toy revives the spirit of handicraft combined with the rich theme of Krishna the Sarathy and Arjuna, his disciple warrior on the brink of war. Marching into the field of Kurukshetra with four glistening white horses, the artist parades his genius with his intricate carving of Krishna and Arjuna taking command of fate.
This curated masterpiece is a tribute to the legend of Mahabharata, still ferocious and inspiring in the minds of those who remember. During the festival of Sankranthi every first month of the year, "Bommala Koluvu" adapts narrative wooden toys to showcase the prodigy of culture. At Artsytribe, we handpick the most exceptional works of creation that take home-decor to the next level, with their artistic quality and the stylish wooden look.
Considering the immaculate message of the Mahabharata and the sheer detail in which the great war is described, one would expect to see more works of art devoted to this enriching tale. However, it is the humble artisans of Kondapalli, one among a few exceptional communities, who carve marvels out of softwood and present toys of high value and meaning.
