kavad: a story in a box
"kavad" is an innovative way of storytelling. in simple terms, its a box with many folding doors; each door depicts a part of the story. this storytelling box originates from mewar, rajasthan. it is hand-carved wood with miniature hand-painting. the storytellers use the box to tell traditional tales of gods & goddesses, kings, local heroes and reveal their valour by unfolding one door at a time.
