Root carving is a traditional art form of Tripura. It consists of carving and polishing tree roots into various artistic creations. Root carving preserves natural beauty. Artists create lifelike and vivid works by a special technique using expression based on the roots natural forms. This kind of creation is not completely artificial, but created by both human beings and nature. Each bamboo root curving is different as difference lies in the natural shape of roots. During the creative process, root carving mostly maintains the natural form of the root, adding some artificial polishing. In other words, root carving is guided by the inherent qualities of the root, rather than by shaping images merely through carving.
