Wooden Sculpture of Warrior Theyyam Kandanar Kelan

Wooden Sculpture of Warrior Theyyam Kandanar Kelan


wooden sculpture is Made from teakwood into the form of a warrior Theyyam, the sculpture is a reminiscence of the rituals and traditions of North Malabar of Kerala and a few places in Karnataka. This Theyyam is of Kandanar Kelan, a warrior who goes hunting in a forest and gets caught in fire. To escape he climbs up a tree on which two snakes live as the tree catches fire too. Another warrior god called Vayanat Kulavan, who happens to be passing by the forest, rescues Kandanar Kelan from the fire. Every year the story is enacted accompanied by dance in which he expresses rage against fire and performs other fiery feats to attract audience. This part of mukhpura is a splendid artifact that embodies the essence of folk culture and prehistoric ritualistic traditions that have survived centuries of historical happenings. Take home this vivid wood carving of the warrior and add a touch of ethnic folk beauty to your interiors.
