Engraving and Calligraphy on Rice Grains of Tamil Nadu

Micro-calligraphy and painting on rice grain(s) is an old Indian tradition. This craft requires immense concentration, neatness of hand, and keen eyesight. The engraved rice grain is usually enclosed in a key chain, pendant, or bracelet, thus keeping it safe, and combining it with a utilitarian function.
