Item description for Kalamkari and Traditional Design Heritage of India by Shakuntala Ramani...
The art of Kalamkari painting is one of the oldest among the traditional arts of India. Drawing upon a repertoire of well-loved epics, Kalamkari is full with richness of colours, simplicity of narrative and precision of detail in its presentation, that remains unparalleled by other art forms of this genre. In this present book Shakuntala Ramani brings out the salient features of a little known textile tradition and shows how this ancient textile craft deeply rooted in religion has adapted to social changes and political upheavals, evolving into a secular and broad-based craft to meet market demands and changing cultures through the ages.
