Terracotta artifacts from Haryana
The tradition of terracotta artifacts of Haryana has a long history, dating back even to the Harappan Era (2300 BC to 1800 BC). The state produces a large variety of terracotta products such as lamps, pitchers, flower vases, pots, musical instruments, clay toys, goblets, human and animal figures, plaques, medallions, and wall hangings. Two-toned vases, decorative pitchers, and lamp bases with shades of black and terracotta colours are also popular.
It is at Surajkund crafts Mela, the annual fair conducted by Haryana Tourism to promote the tradition of Indian handloom and handicraft, that these colorful terracotta craft works are exhibited.
