Gauri Puja is an important Hindu festival and is celebrated in all parts of Maharashtra. Decorative Gauri heads in traditional style made from brass are cast in Pune. Other types of Gauri heads, are made with wood and papier mache.
The making of clay toys is a very old Indian tradition and is usually associated with festivals and celebrations. The very impermanence of clay objects is an important aspect of the continuity of regeneration and creation. Maharashtra has a very strong tradition of creating figures of deities on ceremonial and auspicious occasions. Images of Ganesh are made all over Maharashtra and then carried in procession and worshipped after which they are immersed in water.
