Also known as Marapachi Bommais, which literally translates to ‘wooden dolls’, Marapachi Dolls are an important part of South Indian culture and rituals.
Traditionally made of red sandalwood, silk-cotton-wood or red wood, they are displayed during the Golu Festival which is a part of Dussehra and Navratri celebrations.
Generally made in male-female pairs known as Raja and Rani, they are often playthings that children dress up and are also symbolic gifts during marriages passed on from one generation to the next.
This pair of old Marapachi dolls from Kalahasthi in Andhra Pradesh is exquisitely handcrafted with intricately carved features.
A traditional collectible bringing a touch of heritage to your home.
Both figures are 27 cm tall and 7 cm wide.
