the brightest art scenes are not confined to the museums - find out at Saptaparini.
Saptaparni is conducting an exhibition of Nirmal Toys on the 23rd of August. These toys have been made by the Dastkari Haat Samiti at Nirmal. All the toys have been designed and painted by using non-toxic methods.
Nirmal, known for its paintings, is also a popular toy-making center. Here, the toys are mostly carved out of Puniki wood.
Initially the artisans at Nirmal were making toys depicting mythological characters, but presently they concentrate only on birds and animals.
Nirmal, a village in Andhra Pradesh, is a legendry toy-making center. Story goes that it was here that ancient craftsmen manufactured a material as glowing and enduring as gold, from herbal extraction! Even now, the predominant color in Nirmal toys is gold.
This one-day exhibition is open for all, and entry is free of cost. Please contact 5566-7707 for further details.
