ITEM DETAILS


The roots of leather craft lie in the traditional “Chayya Natak” or shadow play. This performing art where projection of shadows made, needed puppets that played with light. These figures were made of goat- skin, which after being cured and dried, was made translucent. The perforation on the coloured leather gives appearance of rich ornamentation against the background of light. The figures are painted vegetable dyes, with stylization similar to Kalamkari paintings. With decline of puppetry the artisans have diversified to making lamp shades, screens, birds and animals hangings to keep their tradition alive and also earn their livelihood.
