Exploring the never-ending flow of life and awe-inspiring still life in its all possible dimensions and recreating the captured beauty through various media is the divine duty of a sculptor. Every piece of stone or metal passes through his skillful hands incarnates into beautiful interpretations of his brilliance and creativity. It's an effort of his genius to attain immortality. As renowned Cubist sculptor Jacques Lipchitz once lamented "All my life as an artist I have asked myself what pushes me continually to make sculptures. I have found the answer. Art is an action against death. It is a denial of death."

The famed shore temple at the sea, is built from dressed stone. The Shore Temple includes many bas-reliefs, including one 100 ft. long and 45 ft. high carved out of granite.


Indian Sculpture - A well carved tradition


The first ever sculptures in India date back to the period of great civilization flourished in the ancient valley of river Indus. Very exquisite stone and bronze carvings have been excavated from here. This is one of the earliest instances of sculpture in the world itself.


Later sculptures in India began to represent the episodes of the Buddha's life and teachings. Gandharan school of sculpture began to emerge soon. The pink sandstone sculptures of Mathura evolved during 4th to 6th century to reach a very high fineness of execution and delicacy. The most preferred and less expensive materials that were used for producing sculpture in India on wider scale are stone, metal & wood including such as oak, box and terracotta.
