Hand-Made, Hand-Painted Doll From Kondapalli In The Southern State of Andhra Pradesh In India
These type of dolls are hand-crafted from terra cotta and baked in a clay oven. Then they are painted in bright colors. This particular type of doll is a favorite throughout India - made of 4 separate parts, each part moves when you tap it. She dances for you! A very simple mechanism accomplishes this - each part is hollow inside, and rests on the next part via a bent wire post. The doll's movement - which simulates traditional Indian classical dance.
Size: 10 H x 4 W x 4¾ D
Condition: Very good
Weight: Approx. 8 Oz.
There are four pieces. The fourth piece is a metal ring - I have no idea where it goes. The doll dances with the head,body and torso placed on the bent wire in each piece.
