Souvenir Bankura Horse
These Bankura Horses were made for religious purposes and seen in temples during festivals, but over the years its elegant look was appreciated more and it soon began to adorn the living rooms across the world. The artisans realized the demand and soon it has turned into a good flourishing business for them. They come in various sizes and colors. Those wary of transporting terracotta stuff can buy the wooden forms.
At the hotel we stayed, there was a huge Bankura Horse. It was at least 7ft. tall and looked so grand! At one of the shops there I inquired the price of such a large sized one, and I was told it is 30,000INR!
