The Western Himalayan region is not only known for its natural grandeur, but it has also been the home of enchanting Folk Arts. Though having passed through the sieve of time, those are still vibrant an colourful in their pristine glory. In the present work, Folk Arts of the Western Himalayan region have been studies in the national and global contexts to establish the traditional bonds between different communities and nationalities. To that end, besides discussing the relationship between Environment and Folk Art, the book also delves deeper to study Folksong, Folktale, Folk Painting, Folk Images & Sculptures, Folkdance and Folk Theatre. Each of these topics has been dealt very intimately to interpret the finer and subtle nuances of the region-aesthetic aspirations, the popular belief-systems and the socio-cultural traditions of the people. This work is an honest and in-depth presentation of the religio-aesthetic traditions of Western Himalayan region.
