Also known as Marapachi Bommais, which literally translates to ‘wooden dolls’, Marapachi Dolls are an important part of South Indian culture and rituals. Traditionally made of red sandalwood, silk-cotton-wood or red wood, they are displayed during the Golu Festival which is a part of Dussehra and Navratri celebrations. Generally made in male-female pairs, they are often playthings that children dress up and are also symbolic gifts during marriages.
This pair of old Marapachi dolls from Kalahasthi in Andhra Pradesh is exquisitely crafted and features intricately carved details. The left foot of the male doll is damaged, and there is a small chip on the left side of the male figure's headdress as well.
|Size:||18" (H) x 6" (W)|
|Condition:||Slight damage to foot and headdress of male figure|
