Popularized by the Bommala Koluvu displays set up during the great Indian festivals of Sankranthi and Dussehra, handmade toys of a profound cultural context have come to define the talented Kondapalli community of Andhra Pradesh. A synthesis between music, performance arts and craft finds expression in these Kondapalli toys, making them remarkable evidence of human creativity.


 For over six centuries, this ongoing legacy has been moving forward into familiar yet strange territory. This glorious craft has been better times when kingdoms placed significant importance on the cultural arts and crafts. Today, the artisan families juggle between life and passion as they accept meagre wages for their timeless art. In the spirit of every hour spent by the passionate Kondapalli artisan, Artsytribe pays tribute to the Indian craft that has won the hearts of art lovers worldwide.
