Pakistani Artisans and Handicrafts

All Pakistan 'Lok Mela' held in Islamabad, Lok Virsa. Culture and handicrafts of all provinces including Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir was represented there. The most fascinating thing about this event was a chance to meet out real heroes, real artist and to see them working! I pay my regard to all workers and artisans. Enjoy some of the pics of event.
