Nandan Terracotta Pen/Pencil Holder

Nandan Terracotta Pen/Pencil Holder

Nandan is a Hindi word which in English means “Pleasing” or “One who is full of life.” Perfectly fitting to its meaning, the motif name Nandan captures the bubbly nature and playfulness of elephants.

In Pattachitra and several other Indian folk art forms, artists have frequently portrayed elephants as a symbol of royalty, strength and intelligence.

Indigenous to the eastern Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha, the folk art form of Pattachitra is a reflection of India’s glorious past.

The artists - who are called Patuas - have immortalised religious, mythical, and folklore instances in scrolls of fabric. They use bright bold natural colours and a distinctive art style that is rooted in rural tradition.

In a traditional performance, the Patuas unfurl the scroll as they sing their Pater Gaan and mesmerise the audience as they transport them to a land of myth and legends.
