Wood Carvings of Gujarat
Wood Carvings of Gujarat
Description

From the Jacket:

The author has minutely described the wood-carvings displayed on the doors, balconies, struts and columns found in thousands of traditional houses in Gujarat. Most of these houses are over hundred years old. A large part of the timber used for these carving was imported over long distances by sea. Reflecting the lifestyle of inhabitants, these specimens of wooden architecture have been receiving increasing attention and appreciation of the connoisseurs. These works of art are unique in scale and quality for their outstanding woodwork.
