Story Behind the Art:
Hello, my name is Gulam Rasool and I come from the enchanting city of Agra. A perfect example of beauty and elegance. I was born in the year 1940 in Agra and continued to stay here. I am in love with the city. It is so rich in traditional marble sculpting and anyone visiting the beautiful city of Agra would never get enough of the exotic beauty and artistic work of the people here. The beautiful and mesmerizing Taj Mahal is the testament of the rich artistic skill of the people here. I belong to a family having a long bonding relation with the art of marble. I also got interested in this rich work of art and started helping my father in his work. My father was an expert in marble sculpting and jali work. He was honored with state award for excellence in Marble Sculpting in the year 1979. I learned a lot from him and chose to follow his path. After working with my father for a long time, I started my own worship where I experimented new designs and gave new dimension to the regular style. Earlier, those days, there were very few tourist coming to India and all we got from a hard day work was make few bucks by selling the sculpture of Taj Mahal and few other souvenir items made of soap stone. However, over the years things have changed as far as the work or the popularity is concerned. More and more tourist come to India to learn about the exquisite art of India. Everyday, there is thousands of foreigner coming to the beautiful city of Agra to witness the great Taj Mahal. The unique and artistic work of the artisans from Agra has also invited a lot of exporters and buyers from outside to carry our work to the world over. And this has helped we artisans a lot in terms of exposure or financial assistance. Most of the artisans here do not export themselves but work in association with exporter. I also work with number of exporters. After years of hard work, I was honored with state award for excellence in marble handicraft. Today, I am proud to mention that I have earned a name for myself in the art of Jali work which is famous in Agra. However, the opportunity to work with Novica is unique and I love to be associated with. Now, I in my name would be about to showcase my exquisite work to the world. I love the unique way of Novica in promoting the artisans to the world.
