The wealth of art and craft in India
India is a treasure store of traditional crafts. For over 40 years we’ve been travelling to India and been amazed by the diversity of decorative skills. We’re gradually adding to this web site a beautiful collection of woodcarvings, embroidered cottons and woven silks.
In addition there are metal, stone and other decorative and ritual items, silk weavings from Laos, and paintings.
Search our website for wooden shrines, a carved sandstone Buddha head, painted Tibetan door panels, Madhubani tribal paintings from Bihar, woven silk prayer flags and hangings from Laos, carved wooden mirror frames, a gilded wooden horse, vases and boxes inlaid with camel bone, fiercely carved wooden masks, visionary drawings by Gond tribals from central India, Magar carved wooden figures from Nepal, carved wooden Ganesh statues and a fine old inlaid spinning wheel.....
