The art of storytelling through puppetry and toys is integral to India’s folk and oral traditions. Among nomadic and pastoral communities, puppets and toys were the source of information, entertainment, and awareness for people about their own culture. Mythological stories and current affairs were also transmitted by the means of dolls and puppetry. Made of wood, cloth, they are crafted to perfection and are remarkably expressive figurines.
