Votive Plaques from Molela

From Sunday 1st July 2018 to Monday 31st December 2018

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 as a range of unpainted plaques, this display introduces the craft techniques and recent changes in the craft.
