Terracotta is an ancient art form, perhaps one of the first expressions of creativity of the human mind. Terracotta or clay craft has been the symbol of man’s first attempt at the craftsmanship. In fact, the use of the five elements: air, water, earth, fire, and ether in the Terracotta art form lends it both an air of mystery and auspiciousness as per Hindu beliefs. Terracotta figurines of the mother goddess, male gods, and terracotta cart frames and wheels dating back to around 7000 BC have been excavated from various sites of Indus Valley Civilization like Birhana, Mehrgarh, Mohenjodaro, etc. proving that the art flourished in the Indian subcontinent long before it was used elsewhere. Terracotta also had an important role to play in the trade activities of this ancient civilization.
Terracotta, taken from Latin terra cotta or baked earth, is the art of creating glazed or unglazed porous earthenware, figurines, and other decorative materials from clay which is dried and fired in temperatures of around 1000°C giving it a distinctly orange, red, brown, yellow, or grey colour.
