These images are sourced at Puducherry, Panruti, Cuddalore and north Chennai.
There are simple ones, just earthen images as well as some new designs – like the set we spotted that is designed only on the motif of large leaves and painted green.
Hawkers say the images are not painted in toxic colors. But this cannot be cross checked on the spot.
Prices range from Rs 50 to Rs.2000.
More stocks are expected later tonight.
