It has beautifully captured the co-dependence of artistic traditions of wood-carving, miniature paintings, coin, jewelery and more with living traditions of puppetry, dance and other vernacular art forms. The contrasting art forms and practices on display belonging to different regions and time period reiterate the importance of the story of Rama on a diverse audience.
