Why is Indian art unique

India.info -

The history of art in India is as old as the country itself.

The first finds of Indian art date back to around 2000 BC. Many art forms have their origins in the different religions of the country, but the exchange with foreign cultures has also had a strong influence on art. Traditional art forms such as music, theater and literature have survived to this day.

The art, which in the past was mainly promoted by the aristocrats, suffered particularly from the industrial development of India. In the meantime, however, arts and crafts are being promoted again. For example, there is a state-supported art shop in almost every city.

In the western world, India is best known for its carpet weaving and textile production. The processing of silk and the production of fabrics, garments and scarves has meanwhile become an important economic factor in the country.

In addition to the production of textiles, there is also a lot of small art to be admired in India. The artists are known for their playfulness and attention to detail. In the numerous bazaars, for example, you can find boxes carved out of wood, pearl and silver jewelry or wooden furniture. There are also many figures made of brass and bronze.

In summary, India is an art lover's paradise. It is precisely the artistic ability and the natural handling of the materials that make Indian art so unique.
