"Painting was not a very popular craft with Vrindavan shoppers, so I decided to incorporate my creativity into utility items like bowls and vases, and design them with paintings."
"I was born and brought up in Vrindavan town in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, which is also a birthplace of Lord Krishna. Our town is considered holy and there are hundreds of temples here. You could almost say there's one in every nook and corner. Many pilgrims come here to worship. I grew up in this beautiful atmosphere where love and peace reign.
"I spent most of my childhood playing in and around the temples with my friends. I did my college studies in Mathura, about 15 kilometers away. My encounter with this artwork occurred when I was about 17. During high school vacations, I would spend time with my cousin who is a miniature artist. As I was interested in this art, I learned from him. After more than four years, I was so fascinated with this craft that I started to work with him.
"After working with my cousin for almost seven years, I decided to work on my own. I setup a small workshop with a couple of artists to help me. Painting was not a very popular craft with Vrindavan shoppers, so I decided to incorporate my creativity into utility items like bowls and vases, and design them with paintings. They were a big hit with my customers who instantly fell in love with these designs, and I've been doing this ever since. Other workers craft the bowls and vases, and my team and I execute the painting. I've even shown my work in several exhibitions across the country.
"Every day is a new experience and I look forward to a long and lasting relationship with Novica."
The bowls I received were absolutely beautiful. The on line photos did not do them justice. Moreover, they arrived sooner than expected, and were wondefully wrapped with ribbon and a handwritten card. Its an honor to have them in my home.
I couldn't be happier with the gorgeous jewelry box I got for my wife! She loves it. Thank you so much !!!
I purchased the following items from Ganesh: Soapstone jars, 'Pink Palace Elephant', 'Happy Hearts' (set of 3) and 'Marching Elephants'. Every detailed pieces of items, with very bright colours which I love very much. Great set for decorative purposes. Appreciate the effort put in.
The craftsmanship displayed is top shelf. I'm very impressed with the artistry and care taken with the wood construction and the beautiful painting of the three elephants. Fantastic work.

The Green Lotus Turtle soapstone candles are so beautiful! The pictures don't do them justice. Very bright, vibrant colors and there is so much detail. I am very pleased with them. Also, with the included tea light candles, they'd make perfect gifts!
The soapstone pink elephant jar I received is beautiful. Thank you Carol
