About the Artwork +

Renowned artist Dinesh Molela's "Akela Bhairav" Terracotta artwork transports the viewers into the mesmerizing realm of Shaivite devotion through the medium of Terracotta Art. This awe-inspiring sculpture captures Bhairav, the fearsome deity known as Dandapani, in his most formidable form. In rustic and earthy terracotta tones, Bhairav stands as a sentinel of justice, wielding a rod to punish sinners and brandishing a sword alongside the severed head of a human. Molela's artistry unveils the intricate fusion of spirituality and craftsmanship, channeling the essence of Bhairav's power. The sculpture's earthy tones evoke a primal connection to the land, while its intricate details speak to the artist's dedication. The portrayal is a vivid testament to the eternal struggle between righteousness and transgression. In this masterful work, Molela seamlessly marries form and function, inviting viewers to delve into the profound mythology and symbolism of Bhairav's formidable presence.

Dinesh began his apprenticeship at the age of ten, under the supervision of his father.  For fifteen generations Dinesh ji's family have practised the tradition of making terracotta plaques of traditional Hindu Deities. Molela is known in the area as a 'potters village' as there are about 30 families from the Kumhar caste producing pottery.  Dinesh Molela Instagram

    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.
