Craft Museum Delhi

 

 

 

Delhi Craft Museum was designed by Charles Correa, at the Pragati Maidan. This craft museum is unusual in that it is also a gallery, which presents a fascinating collection of folk and tribal. Broken images immersed in holy water, worn metal objects were melted down to cast new and terracotta votive left to decay and merge with a country in which it was collection of core created.The Crafts Museum was actually installed to serve reference materials for craftsmen who were increasingly losing touch with their own traditions in terms of materials, techniques, designs and aesthetics of their arts and crafts in the sudden changes caused by modern industrialization. Here, a craftsman feels free to limit its tradition or to innovate in response to its new contemporary setting.
