Recurring themes include Indian mythological figures, scenarios depicting rural lifestyles and Indian traditional ceremonies. Undoubtedly, the artisans of Kondapalli have attained mastery over their craft through decades of unfaltering practice. Offering their valuable talent and time for affordable prices, this Kondapalli toy depicts a woman dressed in the traditional Indian saree, churning milk for butter. 


The genius of the craftsman is depicted in the unique colour combinations adopted. Using a purely Indian colour palette, the artisan displays his thorough understanding of the colour theory. The women gather in the mornings in chatter and set out into the woods to collect the locally abundant Ankudu wood, a variant of softwood. The men process the wood for longevity and colour absorption before they begin the ardent process of carving. Artsytribe extends its gratitude to the relentless artisan men and women of Kondapalli, Andhra Pradesh, and brings forth their most beloved creations.
