Prefatory Note on the Survival of Ancient Arts and Crafts in Orissa

Title:Prefatory Note on the Survival of Ancient Arts and Crafts in Orissa
Author:Sharma, Sadashiv Rath
Enumeration:Vol. 8 Issue no. 4; September 1955, p. 70-72 + 5 unnumbered leaves between
Abstract:The list of practising artisans is proof of the survival of traditional Orissan crafts -- sculpture (including stone and wood carvings), filigree, and textiles. Most of the wood-paintings -- of which animal and Jagannath images are most prominent -- are done in the regions of Sonepur and Ranpur by maharanas (painters, stone-carvers) and pataras (weavers). Filigree, the manufacture of which is described, is best practised in Cuttack. Orissa is an important centre of single and double "Ikab" weaving. Orissan Ikab has its main centre at Sambalpur, and is mainly woven in coarse cotton, and in many colours with geometric and animal motifs.
