Indian Art and Craft Forms

Indian Art and Craft Forms

India is a country of diversity on grounds like religion, culture, community, language and so on. From generations, we follow and practice various art and craft forms. Indian folk art is still prevalent in many parts of the country.

Currently India has 29 states and 7 union territories. People in India speak about 23 major languages and about 720 different dialects of these languages. India can boast about its rich culture and art forms spreading from north to south and east to west.

All art forms are culturally unique and evolved over years. There are certain art and craft forms which still remain untouched, original and unique despite the modernization that we have seen in recent years.

We have a variety of art and craft forms, of which many of us are not at all aware of. We do not know about many of them because there was nobody to tell us.

My effort is to bring to light these diverse art and craft forms for the benefit of the present and future generations. My work is based on references from various sources – people, articles and other documentations. I would like to sincerely thank and credit all of those who have contributed to this cause.

We are starting to look at and understand India’s cultural heritage, its various art and craft forms. One art/craft form will be presented to you with a brief write up and pictures and/or videos of the same.
