BOOK OF THE WEEK

THE WORLD OF

TRIBAL ARTS IN INDIA

The National Inventory of Tribal Museums

2012

 

Tribal Arts in India:

 by

GN Devy

Project Director

Bhasha Research and Publication Center

**************

" This Inventory, if not an exhaustive listing of the rich diversity of the materials, is nonetheless a definite invitation for researchers and institutions engaged in conservation of tribal culture for a future exploration.

The present volume is the base-line inventory and, it is hoped, will be followed by supplementary volumes in the future.”
