Arts and crafts of Tamilnadu
Tamilnadu's isolated geography left it to develop an uninterrupted classical heritage, enabling it to attain high levels of perfection in almost every craft. This book explores the world of the artisan and craftperson of Tamilnadu who fashions each article with love and care, always with a working knowledge of the age-old 'Shaastras' or canons of art. These creations are a tribute to an ancient culture - and the artisans own understanding of and pride in their work.
