Bronze Icon Casting of Andhra Pradesh

Bronze Icon Casting of Andhra Pradesh

Icon making of various deity forms is an ancient traditional craft in Andhra Pradesh. The deity forms that are made adhere scrupulously to the exacting standards of the ancient Shilpa Shastras in terms of physical anatomy and other characteristics, combining with it basic principles of aesthetics. A hereditary craft, its principles are passed down from generation to generation. Miniature bronze castings are created by craftespersons from Dornakambala and Perumallapalli in the Chitoor district and Dowlaiswaram in East Godavari. The artisans excel in the creation of exquisite deities and their modelling draws inspiration from nature.
