Rose Wood Carving of Tamil Nadu


Madurai is famous for rosewood carvings in bold forms with minutely and painstakingly carved details. They are usually made into tables which are outstanding and have motifs that are floral with parrots or panels with epic scenes. Rosewood carving also appears on carved screens, picture frames, easels, jewellery chests and furniture of the heavy English Victorian style such as cabinets, desks, chairs, tables and sideboards and decorated with Hindu and floral motifs.
