Sandhima (सन्धिम) refers to “the joined object” and is one of the four types of pusta, or “modal work”, according to Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 23. Pusta represents one of the categories of nepathya, or “costumes and make-up”, the perfection of which forms the main concern of the Āhāryābhinaya, or “extraneous representation”, a critical component for a successful dramatic play.
According to the Nāṭyaśāstra, “the model work which is made up or mat, cloth, skin and the like, is called the ‘joined object’ (sandhima)”.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya).
