Terracotta, Terra cotta or Terra-cotta (Italian: "baked earth", from the Latin terra cocta) is a clay-based unglazed ceramic, although the term can also be applied to glazed ceramics where the fired body is porous and red in color. Its uses include vessels (notably flower pots), water and waste water pipes and surface embellishment in building construction, along with sculpture such as the Terracotta Army and Greek terracotta figurines. The term is also used to refer to items made out of this material and to its natural, brownish orange color, which varies considerably. In archaeology and art history, "terracotta" is often used of objects not made on a potter's wheel, such as figurines, where objects made on the wheel from the same material, possibly even by the same person, are called pottery; the choice of term depending on the type of object rather than the material.

Bonsoir, cher Nilotpal,
Je suis totalement sous le charme ! la beauté de l'édifice est stupéfiante. La note d'accompagnement apprend beaucoup également.
Il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de cette composition.

The temple is beautiful with fine terracotta figures on the wall & the design typically of Bengal thatched roof style. The red colour comes out well
