Art and Craft

In the context of the arts and crafts, Rajasthan has been a land of great patronage. Its geographic locale linked it to the Middle East and Europe. As blood mixed - in both war and peace - the cultures intermingled, bringing new skills, palettes and textures. This book opens a new world of arts and crafts. It highlights the interrelatedness of various crafts. The text also traces how most of Rajasthan's crafts - unlike other parts of India where most crafts developed to answer royal needs - developed to fulfill rural needs.
