Crafts of Himachal Pradesh is among the first books to fill this need. The picturesque people of this land, popularly known as Devabhumi, the abode of the gods, continue to express their innate creativity in numerous artifacts. Adapt from fulfilling a functional purpose, these objects are steeped in tradition and are deeply rooted in the soil. All the crafts nurtured by the people of himachal – be they clay toys, wood or stone carvings, metalwork, gold and silver ornaments, basketware, embroideries woolen fabrics or ceremonial paintings executed in keeping with the seasonal cycle – bear the stamp of the sensitive fingers and refined sensibility of their creators.
