Cow Cherial Mask

Cheriyal (or Cherial) is a village about 100 kms away from Hyderabad in Telangana and is known for its style of Scroll Paintings and Masks for many centuries.

Wandering story-tellers used these scrolls and masks in traditional story telling when they travelled from village to village. Drawn from daily life and mythology, the smaller masks and other toys would be sold in the villages once the stories were done with. 

Painstakingly wrought using a light wood base, tamarind seeds and sawdust, these masks are intricately painted, mostly in a red or blue base colour. You will find villagers - men & women in traditional jewellery, turbans, brides & grooms, evil eye protectors/ demons and more. Today, they are used as decorative items for the home or on your desktop. They add a eye-popping splash of colour to a dull corner, brightening it immediately.
