Wooden dolls were introduced to Bengal by the ‘sutradhar’ or carpenter community and they were the experts of this craft. The upsurge of creating these dolls began in the districts of Howrah, Bankura, Purulia and West Midnapore. However, the map has changed with time and at present only a few artisans of Burdwan ace this craft. Places like Natungram, Daihat and Patuli in Burdwan have been still working hard to preserve the art of wooden doll-making. To make these dolls, wood from white teak trees are cut, cleaned and carved to give them desired shapes. In ancient times, these carved woods were then tinted in natural dyes. Though in present times, mostly artificial paints are used to colour them up.
The symbol of wisdom and fulfillment, Lord Ganesh is one of the predominant Hindu Gods. Made out of diverse materials, his idols could be found in almost every Bengali household.
This wooden Ganesh doll was made in Natungram. Different kinds of herbal and chemical colours were mixed up to give it its vibrant hue.
