‘Putul’ – Traditional Toys and Dolls of India

Traditional toys and dolls are dying a slow death in India despite a recent push from the Government. Continuing for thousands of years, toys and festive fairs are now vanishing from urban culture and public spaces. The art of toy making is not restricted to specific parts of India as commonly believed – rather it is extraordinarily vast – as is the diversity of the raw materials.

This exhibition showcases more than 50 toys and dolls from different States and UTs of India made of wood, papier-mâché, metal, tin, stone carving, leather, candle, clothes, seashells etc.

From the Agnibarna-Madhumadhabi Bhaduri collection

Curated by Asani Bhaduri

Inauguration by Shri Jatin Das, well-known artist on 5 December 2023 at 18:30

The exhibition will remain on view until 12 December 2023, 11 am to 7 pm
