Spotted in the Jindal Steel Works Township in Vijaynagar, during a visit to the historical ruins of Hampi a couple of years ago, was this model of a giant traditional clay pot—the Matki, sliced in half. Installed in the centre of a garden that doubles up as a popular meeting place and a play area, this clay pot was the centre of all attention for the residents across all ages. As you can well imagine, the place was packed with visitors. We couldn’t find anyone who wasn’t posing or grabbing snapshots of this structure. Since we stayed very close to this township at the time, we’d usually spend our evenings here, in the garden, much to the delight of our 8-year-old, who would happily oblige us by posing for the camera those days, unlike now. Thankfully, it was a Monday evening and the weekend rush was finally gone.
I think this is quite a unique installation, as we normally don’t get to see such things.
Have you seen anything like this before? What do you think of it?
