In the late 19th century, Europeans had access to early souvenirs, such as sets representing concepts of different types of people that a visitor could encounter in Indian society. The production of these miniatures reflected the growing presence of Europeans and Americans in Asia. Museums acquired them as a means of understanding the many and varied Indian cultures.

Materials include wood, clay, cloth and colouring pigment.
