A further factor to consider in evaluating the role of craft goods in state economies is the extent to which products can move between various economic spheres, through market exchange (as among the Aztecs; Berdan 1994; Brumﬁel 1980; Hassig 1985; Hodge and Smith 1994; Zeitlin 1991) or monetary transfers. Inscriptional records from the Vijayanagara period provide evidence for the expanded use of currency – gold, silver, and bronze coinage – in state administration and economic transactions. Taxes were increasingly collected in cash instead of goods; currency played an increasing role in temple donations, payment to military and other laborers; and at least some raw materials and ﬁnished craft products were exchanged through market mechanisms.
And, how are such developments associated with changes in larger political or economic structures? While household and individual production can be presumed to have temporal precedence over workshops and factories when considered at a global scale of historical change, the development of complexly organized forms of production is not inevitable, even in complex societies (see also Underhill 1991). Nor does the appearance of large-scale production units preclude the simultaneous existence of smaller-scale organizational forms.
Vijayanagara elites and institutions of various sorts were interested in craft production, but seldom in its direct management or coordination. Their control was exercised indirectly through taxation and, in the case of 15 16 The Political Economy of Craft Production state institutions, through being the best consumers of valued craft products such as elaborate textiles, and generous patrons of their producers. As a transformative process – of the natural to the cultural – crafting and its results often carry enormous ideological import that goes beyond the meanings attributed to the goods themselves.
