Tikuli Art

Tikuli art, again, is said to be an art form of India’s ancient world, and thus is considered a great cultural asset for India. The Mauryan age is said to be its starting point but today, it is thriving in the regions of Bihar especially Patna. The art gets its name from ‘tikli’ also called ‘bindi’ in Hindi. The original Tikuli art used glass as its base and was decorated with golden foil and gems, but gradually it migrated to colorful hardboards.
