Nirmal Craft - Egret
WOODEN BIRDS OF NIRMAL
Nirmal art is an ancient form that involves making toys and paintings from a variety of softwood, known as ‘Poniki Chekka’ (white sander wood), traditionally practiced by the 'Naqash' artists of the 14th century. A mixture of sawdust in tamarind seed paste, called Chinta Lappam, is used as a base to smoothen and bring shape to the toy, and also to glue on its various parts. Once dry, these get a final coat of brilliant paint, also typical of the Nirmal Paintings.
