Stone Crafting

An exclusive form of crafting done on stones and drawing inspiration from the mind, mythology and real-life experiences, the sculptors of Allagadda, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati and other regions in Andhra Pradesh have left behind an impression that only grows valuable by time. The impressive sculptures on the stone are mainly mythological in character. The stone crafts that represent various mythological figures are very popular and practiced by the certain section of tribes and select workers in Andhra Pradesh.

The focus of the theme in stone crafts is not merely physical attributes but also indicates higher spiritual values of life. To give expression to such abstract conceptions, the sculptor consciously set for himself an ideal, which is not only based on the contemplation of the natural form but upon meditation of the divine form. The distinctive power of suggestiveness is conspicuous in the sculpted forms. Various gods, goddesses and other mythological characters are etched skilfully on stones that look stunning and amazing. These stone crafts are quite popular and in the modern age, they represent exquisite elements of beauty and charm. These are available in Lepakshi Visakhapatnam.
