Agaria Doors

The doors of the houses belonging to the Agaria tribes, of Madhya Pradesh, are known for the art and the technique used in their making. These doors are dual paneled.

The doors contain the figures of birds, animals, human beings, flowers and geometric patterns. A rough figure of the proposed motif is cut into the door. The final figure and designs are then carved into the niche. This technique is a distinct feature of the Agaria tribe.
