Terracotta in Rajasthan


Rajasthan’s terracotta tradition, dating back to the Indus Valley Civilization, continues today in all parts of the state. Utility items like jars, water-pots, urns, and utensils are prepared from unglazed red terracotta and exhibit classic elegance despite their simplicity. Images and plaques of Hindu deities, mounted warriors, caparisoned camels and tiny lamps are to name a few of the popular terracotta creations. The terracotta horses of Molela village near Udaipur decorate many a lawn. Excursion in the rural belt gives an opportunity to view potter’s wheels.
