Crafts of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh
Crafts of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh
Description
From the Jacket: The rustic earthiness of Jammu, the 'paradise on earth' that is Kashmir and the ethereal isolation of Ladakh, together form the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Its crafts and cultural traditions are deeply rooted in strong historical movements that have swept its lands. Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism have contributed to eras of philosophical, religious, literary and artistic enlightenment leaving in their wake a perceptible imprint of highly civilised thought and artistic endeavour. Closely linked to this is the effect of the landscape on the people. The crafts of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are presented in this context for it is believed that the people's bond with their environment and cultural heritage is manifested through their craft traditions.

In this book, scholars and artists with an intimate knowledge of the state write on the lives of its crafts people, their methods of production and the development of design in a historical context. While the most contemporary and exquisite workmanship has been displayed in weaving, embroidery, stone and metal work, ornaments, papier mache, carpets and woodwork, it's straw, willow, grasswork and pottery that reflect the interlinking of nature with village life. A chapter on the nomadic tribes - the Gujjars and Bakarwals-describes for the first time their crafts and lifestyles which span all three regions of the state.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
