Tourist-trade elephants, Rajasthan


Although made by hand, these were among many similar items produced in large numbers, presumably to be hawked to tourists, at a small shop in the desert near Jodhpur. As individual items they didn't appeal to me; as unglazed items lined up along rough shelves in the soft light of the shop’s interior, they seemed curiously beautiful.
