DescriptionResearch and documentation project. The Craft Heritage of Oman is foremost a tribute to Oman's artisans and the rich traditions they embody. The authors consider the origins and development of the country's craft industries, including the relationship between craft usage and lifestyle. They provide a comprehensive record, region by region, of the design and production techniques of the diverse crafts to be found across the Sultanate. A wide-ranging artefact catalogue combines with a concluding review on the changing role of craft industries in a rapidly modernising society, to make this the most significant publication on the traditional craft heritage of south-east Arabia.
