Indian Art and Culture

Crafts in India endeavours to tell the story of Indian Art and the prologue to the story lies deep in the culture of the land. Artistic expressions have their muses hiding in the nondescript corners of common life - domestic rituals, religious rites, social ceremonies and even in the most insignificant repertoires of common people. Truly knowing and appreciating Art, therefore, involves an enlightened enquiry into the lives and culture of the people creating the work of art. To facilitate this journey of discovering India, Crafts in India introduces a comprehensive Reference Resource base, shedding light on different aspects of the varied and vast culture that is India.
