Terracotta, a symbol of the man’s first attempt to create something unique. The lyric of handicraft is a significant mark of tradition that India is build with. From the earliest time, this art is embedded as a religious ritual, a tradition found from the earliest times.
Like the Bankura Horse Art, the terracotta horse, produced in Panchmura village in Bankura district in the Indian state of West Bengal.
