Question yourself, what is so special about these Thanjavur Bommai or Dolls and how is it different from those made of machines? These are not just a combination of Pulp and Clay or three separate molds combined to form a single Doll, it is ancient Science.
A Perfect Balance of Craft with Science
Authentic Thanjavur Bommai are a perfect measure of Balance with Gravity and repulsive nature of magnetic fields that’s allows clay to stand back with no strings and springs attached. It is a Science discovered much before the Concept of Gravity was told to the world by looking at an Apple falling from the tree. Though the Original Maker of the doll remains shrouded in mystery, it is the people of Thanjavur who have kept the craft alive for centuries and is definitely the most deserved handicraft product accorded with prestigious GI Tagged Status.
