Inspiration and concentration are never too far away in the studio which is filled with tools, references, raw materials as well as finished pieces. Just get in, listen, observe and get lost in the meditation that is art.
It was around the 8th century that the temple sculpture of Rajasthan flourished. Rajasthan is world-famous for its awe-inspiring architectural monuments made of stone. Forts, Palaces and Temples are the amazing success of the craftsmen that have few competitors. The bright stone-carving or delicate jali work in stone of this region is very characteristic. Columns, jharokhas (windows), brackets, domes, cupolas and arches are meticulously carved. Using simple tools like chisel, hammer and borer they give meaning & form to the formless.
