Goddess Terracotta Jewel Set – History at its Finest!
Terracotta means ‘baked earth’ and is made from natural clay, giving it a reddish-brown colour. It may be glazed for durability or to add colour. Being waterproof and sturdy, several ancient sculptures in this clay are still intact. Making terracotta might appear to be a simple form of art, but it is a labour-intensive technique. From making the clay to moulding it to the desired shape and then baking it under the sun, is a long process. After the terracotta item hardens, it is then glazed for a lustrous appearance.
