Chander Kant celebrates the great love between Lord Krishna and Radha with this admirable kadam wood sculpture. Carved by hand, the column-like sculpture portrays the beautiful Radha on one side, and handsome Krishna on the other, playing his flute. Standing on a lotus throne, the Hindu deity and his beloved appear with expressive detail.
Chander's family members have been carvers for generations. He grew up watching his father, uncle and other relatives carve but it is his grandfather who taught him. His family has a small workshop that produces wood jewelry and other carvings using chisels and traditional hand tools. Chander regularly conducts workshops and other educational training sessions for thousands of artisans from all over India. He is dedicated to preserving wood carving and other traditional Indian arts. He is a prominently recognized artisan and has received numerous awards.
Chander provides for his two children and is determined to give them every opportunity to succeed in life.
