THE CRAFTS OF MADHYA PRADESH - AN OVER VIEW
Keywords:Commercial Craft, Antiquity, Decorative Items, International Market
In Indian art, the eternal presence of the cosmos remains associated through centuries. Tradition executes to maintain the relationship of man in specific style and technique. All creative activity enjoyed high appreciation and prestige when the hands of a craftsman are engaged in his craft. It is always a ceremonial.
“The aim of the artist is not to extract beauty from the nature but reveal the Life within life, the Noumenon within phenomenon, the reality within unreality and the soul within matter. When it is revealed, beauty reveals itself. It has been the constant endeavor the Indian artist to convey this idea in the words and wood, in the clay and stone, in brass and bronze, and even through music, and dance. The aim has always been the same- to incarnate the infinite in the finite.”1.
