Lacquer finished Wooden Balaji
The craft of making wooden lacquered objects is said to have been practiced from 300 BC. Toys, Ornaments, Idols & Decorative Articles made from softwood and brightly coloured with lacquer are famous for their skillful craftsmanship. The primitive tools used depict the skill harnessed over centuries by the skilled craftsmen. Eco-friendly and organic colors are used while making the artefacts which are derived from Anar, Kattha, Annatto seeds, Indigo, and Kasim plants. This craft is mainly practiced in parts of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, but facing challenges due to availabiity of wood, and increasing raw material prices.
