Horn, Bone, Ivory Carving of Delhi

Craft Revival Trust

Delhi has long been renowned for ivory carving. A variety of ivory ware, both decorative and utilitarian, was produced. This included exquisitely carved elephant tusks, perforated table lamps, traditional chess-sets, boxes, small painted panels, and contemporary jewelry. With the ban on the use of ivory, craftspersons have turned to other substitutes such as bone, wood and horn for carving.
