Bringing clay to life

Infusing life into clay idols is the artisans’ skill and with awareness about use of clay idols increasing, these traditional potters are working overtime to meet the demand from devotees celebrating in their houses and mass pujas in public places in Hyderabad. Decorating Lord Ganesha idols with carcinogenic colours is a thing of the past and majority root for the clay idols.
