Bobblehead dolls have been a part of our household now since I can remember. Fondly called “Thanjavur Thalayatti Bommai” (meaning “Tanjore Head-Shaking Doll” in Tamil), we’ve had ones who dance and ones who just bobble their heads. But when I found some at Jodhpur, it took me by surprise. We found these made using paper-mache (the Thanjavur dolls are mostly made using wood or mud/clay), with a spring running through them. The owner at Mehrangarh Fort says his 100-year-old grand mother is the one who finishes them up with fixing the spring in place. Quite pretty (and a bit scary) to look at though!
