IMAGES OF INDIA featured terra cottas made in India as well as examples made at Mingei International Museum by potters from India during the exhibition, FORMS OF MOTHER EARTH, part of the 1986 U.S. Festival of India.

The exhibition terra cottas included horses, elephants, bulls, and other animal forms and figures, as well as pottery forms used in daily life and ritual. Among the featured temple cloths were woodblock prints from Ahmedabad. Other ornamental arts included jewelry, dowry chests, household shrines and implements, toys, and paintings. The exhibition revealed the rich diversity and integral relationship of art and daily life in India.
