Survey of Arts and Crafts of Rajasthan: Techniques of Important Crafts and their Adaptations to Modern Use -- Wood Work

Title:Survey of Arts and Crafts of Rajasthan: Techniques of Important Crafts and their Adaptations to Modern Use -- Wood Work
Author:Dhamija, Jasleen
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 18 Issue no. 1; December 1964, p. 47-48
Abstract:The richness of wood carving in Gujarat is not seen here perhaps because of the low availability of wood. It is largely imitative. Woodwork is seen on doors in the Shekhawati area, toys, and utility items in temples and palaces. In some areas, lacquering was combined with ivory inlay. Bassi, a village about 20 miles from Chittorgarh, is best known for wood carvings painted with lacquer colours, and produced for ritual purposes. Pipar city and Bhari Sajanpur near Pali prepare thin lathe-turned bowls for Jaina monks. The All India Handicrafts Board has a training programme of tarkashi work (brass wire inlay in wood) in the Artistic Craft Institute, Jaipur.
