Kondapalli bommalu are exquisite handicrafts originating in Kondapalli, Andhra Pradesh. This grand Pelli Pallaki toy is carved out of white wood by the experienced artisans of the region, with an impressive eye for detail. The Kondapalli artisan skilfully renders this entourage of singers and dancers accompanying the newlyweds with a vibrant colour palette. Unlike the highly industrialised production of art today, every product of Kondapalli toymaking has a story, a creator and a dream behind it. Taming wood into toys of such delightful subjects is indeed an art to conserve, let alone praise.
The cultural theme of the toy makes it a thoughtful celebratory gift at weddings. This toy is no stranger to South India's Bommala Koluvu gathering around the time of Sankranti. Joining the dots together, this wooden masterpiece completes the storyline of the Bommala Koluvu display. The artist brilliantly portrays the characters of the scenario in vibrant wedding attire, upheaving the seated bride and groom.
Two palanquin-bearers dressed in Dhotis carry the celebrated couple on their shoulders. The Kondapalli toy insinuates the joyful procession of marriage where the newly-weds are showed off to the village folk as part of the continued tradition. This Kondapalli toy paints a heartfelt image of India's rich and spirited tradition, unchanged and unbothered through eras. However, the downfall of local handicrafts in recent times tells us that culture is at stake. Hosting a theme so pure, this curio finds itself a perfect home wherever the artisan's real legacy and sacrifice is acknowledged and respected.
The marriage-Pallaki bomma befits your every need, be it finding a unique gift full of personality for a dear one or an authentic decor piece that elevates the aesthetic of a home. Supporting every local craftsman who cheerfully picks up his chisel and tirelessly devotes himself to art, Hastha Kalalu brings forth this beautiful creation to you.
