The Thanjavur doll is a form of terracotta-based traditional Indian bobblehead or roly-poly toy. The doll’s centre of gravity and overall weight are concentrated at the bottom-most point, resulting in a continuous dance-like movement with gentle oscillations. These toys are traditionally handcrafted and have elaborate, hand-painted exteriors.
Thanjavur dolls are constructed primarily of terracotta and are entirely handcrafted and hand-painted by expert artisans. These artisans provide the dolls and toys with a variety of shapes, sizes, colours, and styles to depict several classical dance forms such as Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, and Manupuri, among others.
Tamil Nadu is a place with several distinctive features of tourism where stories never end.
