Book Description
India has the widest variety of handicrafts anywhere in the world. The traditions of craftsmanship have been passed down through generations and the excellence of skill is manifested even today. The simple artisan becomes a master craftsperson, utility objects, religious artifacts and finally wrought pieces with high artistic expression intermingle with the dynamism of a rich civilization. Each of the major age-old crafts are produced all across the vast expanse of india, depicting different aspects in design and presentation, depending on historical influences, cultural variation and changes in people`s needs. Despite the rapid engulfing of many traditional crafts related to ritual or daily use by mass produced industrial goods, the craftspeople of india living in both rural and urban areas, continue with their work because they known no other.
