Abstract:Terracotta art has flourished in India for over 5000 years and continues as a popular artistic medium today. Ritualistic demand for terracotta images, as well as a need for decorative devices contributed significantly to rapid development of the craft. Contrary to popular belief, terracotta was not exclusively a poor man's art but served as a mode of expression and means of ornamentation for all strata.
