Sarguja - Clay Relief Panel


Sundaribai, the creator of several masterpieces in clay relief work and mud architecture, was born in Puhputra village of the Sarguja district of Chhattisgarh in a family of Rajwar farmers. Usually it is terracotta crafts that have been practised by potter communities from this region, but the Rajwars have traditionally worked with clay. After their homes are built, Rajwar women plaster the walls with clay afresh every year after the rains.
