Rajasthan's rich culture has always captivated people from all over the world. This is the first book that focuses exclusively on the living legacy of the traditional silver jewellery of Rajasthan, combining in-depth research with vivid photographs to present a fascinating glimpse into the history of the precious metal that has always been an integral part of India's most famous desert state. India's cultural expression is varied in style as well as form; a kaleidoscope formed by the sheer size of the country, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs and histories. This series is a tribute to the tradition and continuity of India's culture, as well as its constant evolution. About the Author Tripti Pandey has long been recognized for her part in the unfolding of Rajasthan's rich heritage. Her involvement with folk music and dance resulted in the unique and critically acclaimed book, Where Silence Sings. She is an avid travel writer, and the recipient of the Australian President's Gold Medal (2003).
