The term usta is derived from Persian word ustad or master in a particular art or several arts. Usta art is a broad term which is the combination of many different forms of arts and techniques.
In current times, the most popular form seen is the gold emboss work. This form of art is performed on walls, ceilings, glass, wood, marble and artifacts made of camel leather also.
