Stone Carver

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 2 April 2008 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This stone carver will have taken one year to sculpt this image of the Elephant headed God Ganesh (God of wisdom and new beginnings) to go in a temple, by the time it is complete. He works in a village just outside Bangalore that is full of stonemasons and metalworkers all dedicated to temple work.
