Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Introduction to Early Chera

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 2:04 AM
Early Chera painting
The Chera country and the Kongu area which was included in the kingdom of the Cheras reveal the influence of Pallava and Pandyan art. Chera rock-cut cave temples, like those at Kaviyur and Tiruvallara, recall the early Pallava temples at Mamandur, Pallavaram, Siyamangalam, Tiruchirapalli, Mahendravadi, etc. The beautiful face in classical style, which is nearly all that, is left of the painting which once adorned the cave temple at Tirunandikkarai of about the eighth-ninth centuries A.D, represents the early phase of Chera art. It is interesting to compare this with a fragment of painting representing a princely figure from one of the cells of the Kailasanatha temple at Kanchi to which it bears a striking resemblance.
