Rajasthan's Terracotta tradition, dating back to the Indua Valley Civilization, continues today in all parts of Rajasthan.

Utility items like jars, water-pots, urns, and utensils are prepared from unglazed red terracotta and exhibit miraculous elegance despite their simplicity.

Images and plaques of Hindu delities, mounted warriors, caparisoned camels and tiny lamps are to name a few of the popular terracotta creations.

An age old craft in Rajasthan saw dust, mashed and mixed finely with mud and clay in a semi solid paste on which the image is sculpted and later dried and polished in colour retaining its natural hue, they make best of decorative items with authentic ethnicity.
