Tribal and Folk Lifestyle of India

  • Tribal and Folk Lifestyle of India Conceptualized by : Smt. Anju Sachdeva and Sushmit Sharma


    The vast geographical expanse of our country (India) nurtures a variety of tribal and folk communities, practising a myriad of colourful rituals and ceremonies. This gallery attempts to highlight a few masterpieces from the kaleidoscope of objects connected with these communities, from the Anthropology Department of the National Museum, New Delhi. These artefacts represent the utilitarian and ritualistic character of the folk and tribal life and are imbued with the local flavour and sense of aesthetics.
