Votive Plaques from Molela

From Tuesday 25th June 2019 09:30 to Tuesday 6th August 2019 17:00

Molela is a small village in southern Rajasthan famous for the potters who produce votive plaques. Known locally as murti, these plaques were traditionally bought by Adivasi communities and taken away to be used at village shrines. Each plaque contains a representation of a deity (from folk heroes and Adivasi community gods and goddesses to well-known Hindu deities, such as Ganesh). Alongside a range of unpainted plaques, this display introduces the craft techniques and recent changes in the craft.
