Compelling terracotta designs of toys made by Manabodha Rana have earned him the distinction of being one of the most prized craftsmen in Odisha.
For the last 45 years, he has repeatedly made his state proud, both at national and international levels. He is over 60 now but the indomitable spirit and passion keep him going to produce new designs. It’s not only Manabodha, but also his entire family that takes pride in keeping alive the ancient and traditional art of terracotta.
His little toy elephants, horses, cows, bullocks and worship items helped him take his art to the national level. Besides pots and pans, Manabodha’s creative experiments brought forth unique miniatures of crows, parrots, doves, and frogs on roof tiles.
