 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The wood-based arts and crafts of Saharanpur are well-known the world over today for their hand-crafted workmanship and distinctive designs.

This Book attempts to establish a continuity of the art-movement in the Ganga-Jamuna Doab region. Effort has been made in the present work to systematically trace the origin of this art to the indigeneou Roots and bring out the stages of its development through the course of History to its present position. In order to discover the roots of the art of wood-carving in the indigenous soil, strenuous field-exploration, collection and collation of diverse source-material, most of it of unconventional category had to be undertaken. It could be found that while the art of wood-carving has in the past remained largely confined to the structural embellishment of the aristocratic mansions of the wealthy merchants and nobles, in our times it found expression on small decorative and utilitarian items--furniture, toys, curio and novelty items, etc.

The scope of this study has been extended further to the interiors of the mountainous north, where the architectural relics of the classical age still exist, so that a continuity of the classical art and architectural traditions may be established and a parallel drawn between the theme and style of the classical sculptural Architecture of the yore and the carved wooden entranceways of the old havelis of Saharanpur.

It is hoped that this work shall pave way for further and more exhaustive researches on this handicraft, and many other ones, in other regions of the country.
