Folk Embroidery Of Western Himalaya

 
9788190439411: Folk Embroidery Of Western Himalaya

Himachal Pradesh has a unique and fascinating heritage of arts and culture, and abounds in priceless treasures of art, to which its wood-carved temples, wall-hangings, miniature paintings, sculptures in stone and metal etc. stand a testimony. What is unique about the arts and crafts of this region is that classical and folk traditions developed side by side and from time to time interacted upon and enriched one another. the crafts of this region have been nurtured by the loving hands of peasant women. Of these domestic arts and crafts, embroidery is the most fascinating. Many years ago, some art historians shed light on a particular branch of embroidery known as Chamba rumals. The extensive travels of the author of the present volume all over Himachal Pradesh enabled her to photograph other articles of Himachal embroidery such as wall hangings, coverlets, dice boards, handfans, cholies, rosary covers sashes, caps, book-wraps etc., which are virtually unknown to the general reader. In bringing to light these unknown and unnoticed embroidered pieces, the author has indeed done a great service. One may, without any fear of exaggeration, claim that in this respect this book is the first of its kind in the field.

Book Description hardcover. Book Condition: New. (Size: 25.5 x 25.5 cms ), ( Profusely illustrated with 165 dexterously produced plates and 24 line drawings in full color on art paper), In that book, Dr. Aryan had written about the possibility of the embroidered cholis having been introduced to this region by the Rajput royal women from Rajasthan and Gujarat, who were married to the local rulers. Over the 35 years of traveling in Himachal, the author has been able to find an explanation for this affinity, which she has included in the present second revised edition. In the present volume, a much larger variety of not only rumals, but other embroidered articles that are far more fascinating from every viewpoint has been added inclusive of explanations as to how the styles or patterns travelled to Himachal Pradesh. 148 Verify ISBN for International Edition, Year of Publication 2010 8190439413.
