The craftsmanship is simply flawless. It is precision incarnate. Plus, the image on the website accurately reflects what I received -- a fact I especially appreciated! This is the third work I have ordered from Gulam Rasool. All are exemplars of exquisite, precise beauty. I have placed them in locations in my home where I will see them several times every day. They delight the eye.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Close to his eightieth birthday, Gulam continues the art he learned from his elders. His father was an marble carver and jali artisan honored with the state award for excellence. Gulam has been honored with the same distinction. He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this craft, and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Gulam Rasool has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $1800.

Nearing his eighth decade, master stone sculptor Gulam Rasool continues to provide for his family, especially his grandchildren.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Gulam is proud to be able to help provide for his grandchildren's education.
