Little Known Heroes is a project by a team of three designers – Soujanyaa Boruah, Manjari Sheel, Chris Dame – supported by two
based design studios. They worked with local painters and carvers in India to bring
to life the characters and back stories of six of the little known heroes from
Hindu scriptures. The six characters are Bali,
Sharabha, Jambavan, Garuda, Vasuki and Jatayu.
The collectable toys are made from local, sustainable materials by skilled craftsmen – it is an amalgamation of modern illustration styles and traditional crafting techniques.
A single piece toy is priced at 900/-. It is currently available at the online store afday.
