Folk Art and Craft

Folk, Folk art and craft, Folk art of Karnataka, Folk Arts & Crafts In Karnataka, Karnataka Arts Crafts, Arts CraftsSome of Karnataka's folk arts and age-old rituals have given rise to many traditional handicrafts. The worship of spirits-the bhuta cult-in the coastal districts has confident the making of huge wooden idols, some of which are kept outside villages as guardians of the inhabitants. Likewise, the art of puppetry has encouraged many wood carvers and painters to make a variety of puppets. In addition to puppets made of wood, Karnataka also makes leather puppets though the latter are more comprehensively used and made in neighboring Andhra Pradesh.
