This book celebrates the diversity of the vast subcontinent by examining little known folk traditions of village and nomad peoples. Drawing upon the traditions of India's half million villages, it helps comprehend the inner logic behind the almost numberless acts of Hindu devotion that occur each day. From the fabric embroidery & mirror art from Gujarat (Kutch and Saurashtra), Banjara embroidery, Mud wall decorations of Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, Kolam patterns of Tamil Nadu and Terracotta art from all over India... This book covers it all accompanied with beautiful colour photographs.
