Sitting on a lotus throne, Buddha gestures a peace mudra while he meditates with serene abandon. India's Chander Kant carves this inspiring sculpture by hand from a single piece of kadam wood. Kant's care for detail is impressive as he sculpts an image of vivid realism.
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.
"This was a gift for my husband."
I wanted my husband to have a Buddha and when I saw this was a Peace Buddha it was perfect. You see our last name is Peace. This is a beautiful carved art work and will be very cherished. The skill is impeccable.
