Rajasthan Arts and Crafts

Rajasthan is among the richest states in the county as far as the field of arts and crafts is concerned. May be it was a result of the war- like lifestyle of the people of Rajasthan which sharpened the creative senses, artistic skills and inspired them to create the most opulent and richest of treasures. Stone , clay , leather, wood, ivory, lac, glass, brass, silver, gold and textiles were given the most brilliant forms.
Art flourished in this region as far back as 2nd-1st centuries BC and continued over the centuries. In Baroli , in the Hadoti region, presence of several sculptures proves that a regular art school existed in the 10th century. The cave paintings, terracotta and other stone sculptures  excavated at different sites corroborate this.

Each period of history saw its own contribution to the thriving art scene.  History of Rajasthan reveals that the kings and their nobles were patrons of arts and crafts and they encouraged their craftsmen in activities ranging from wood and marble carving to weaving , pottery and painting. And art seems to have been an obsession with the inhabitants of this parched landscape.
The desire to decorate their surroundings was very strong. Nothing was overlooked --- animals from the regal elephant to the lowly donkey, the great palaces and the inner chambers of forbidding forts were decorated with as much attention as were the walls of humble mud huts. The inhabitants were not too far behind when it came to adorning themselves and it was not only the women who beautified themselves—the heroic warriors extended equal attention to their clothing and armour- they went into battles with meticulously ornamented swords and shields. The horses and elephants that took the warriors to battles received the same care ----- jeweled saddles and intricate silver howdas  were just some of the ornaments that were used to adorn them.
For women there was infinite variety—tie and dye fabrics, embroidered garments, enamel jewellery inlayed with precious and semi- precious stones, leather jootis. They put their lives indoors to very good use by decorating their surroundings--- on the walls of their skilled craftsmen to adorn the Mughal courts.

The Rajput rulers encouraged the artisans to set up schools for the propagation of their crafts. Each Rajput  principality had its own unique craft and to this day , every little town and village has its share of lanes where the craftsmen can be found practicing a craft  handed down by his ancestors. Some of the popular crafts are:
