​Mud & Mirror work ​is a traditional mural craft of Kutch in Gujarat, India. It is mostly done by the village people (Rabari community) of the region Kutch to decorate their houses (traditionally known as ​Bhungas). 
This craft is also known as “​Lippan Kaam” across India. The word ​Lippan means plastering with mud/dung or both and ​Kaam means work. This craft is traditionally made of materials like mud and camel dung that were locally available in the region and helps to keep the interiors of the house cool. Though, the work was limited to the interior walls but today it’s also found on the outer walls of the ​Bhungas
