    Cherial masks are a modified version of the Nakashi art, distinctive to the Cheriyal village, of Warangal district in Telangana. Wandering storytellers used painted Cheriyal masks to build intrigue for the gathered crowd in any festival to tell religious stories and folklore. The artistic tradition of making masks, handed down from generations is now a boon to the craftsmen in this Cheriyal village.

    These masks very much preserve the Indian art. We are sharing a detailed video of step by step making process of the mask by our Cherial mask artist - Sai Kiran's grand mother- Mrs. Vanaja.
