About the Artwork +

In this striking terracotta craft, artist Ranjan Das has masterfully sculpted a young villager poised in a comfortable sitting position, exuding a readiness to discuss village matters. This villager, a quintessential representation of rural life, is adorned with a traditional neckpiece and earrings, adding authenticity and cultural depth to the piece. His well-groomed, prominent mustache further enhances his distinguished appearance, symbolizing the pride and identity of village men. The villager holds a drum and sticks, tools of his trade as the village herald, ready to make important announcements. This detail not only adds a dynamic element to the sculpture but also highlights the integral role of communication in rural communities. The posture and expression captured by Das convey a sense of alertness and engagement, making the figure appear lively and relatable. The traditional terracotta designs are meticulously applied, showcasing intricate patterns that are characteristic of this ancient art form. The rich, earthy tones of the terracotta bring warmth and realism to the piece, reflecting the artist's dedication to preserving traditional craftsmanship while infusing it with contemporary relevance. Ranjan Das's creation is a testament to the enduring beauty and cultural significance of terracotta art, celebrating the vibrancy and communal spirit of village life.

                                                  Terracotta


                                                  Teracotta art has been practised in India for thousands of years, dating back to the Indus Valley civilization. Clay is used to make earthenware, figurines, and other ornamental items. Clay is dried and then fried at extremely high temperatures to allow it to take shape. The artform also has a spiritual importance, as it is claimed in Hinduism that this material uses the five components of the universe: air, water, fire, ether, and earth. States including as Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, and Rajasthan have a long and illustrious history with the art form.
