Story Behind the Art:
Rakesh Pathak from Jaipur believes he was born with a strong creative instinct. 'Ever since I was a little boy, I have always enjoyed creating things with my hands. I mastered the art of wood carving during my six-year apprenticeship with a reputed craftsman in Delhi. I remember this period of my life as an amazing experience, though time came to venture out and set up my own workshop. Eventually I was able to offer employment to other craftsmen.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
