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.

About of Lokapala

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 11:54 PM
The Lokapalas are the guardian kings of the four cardinal points, north, south, east and west of the Mount Sumeru, the centre of the Buddhist universe, the Buddhist paradise (sukh5vati). They are generally represented in full armour, coats of mail, boots, headdress, etc. 

Lokapala Virupaksa, the guardian king of the west is represented as a warrior wearing coat of mail and boots and holding caitya in the right hand and naga in the left hand. He is the king of the nagas and a nagakanya is represented as offering a vase of jewels. At the bottom a devotee is portrayed holding vase with seven auspicious jewels (saptaratna). The upper part of the thanka represents scenes from the life of the Buddha. At the right and left corners Buddha is represented preaching to his father and the disciples after his enlightenment and giving sermons to the nagas and the garudas.

The iconographic representation of Lokapala in warrior's attire shows the influence of art traditions of Central Asia in Tibet.
