Wooden Handicrafts

Wooden handicrafts in Tamil Nadu are aesthetically very appealing and symbolic of the rituals and traditions of the state. Articles for daily household use, home decor, traditional panels in various sizes, finely carved small shrines, wall decorations, figurines, can all be found in Ootacamund's markets. Tables with floral motifs and panels with scenes from Hindu mythology are particularly interesting. Apart from delicate products, woodcarvers also make baskets, ropes and mats with bamboo shoots, cane, reeds and palm tree parts.
