The Elephanta island is located 10 km away from the Gateway of India at Mumbai. These caves house rock cut temples dating back to the 7th century AD. The entire complex was created through a process of rock removal. An epitome of Indian cave culture, Elephanta consists of seven caves of which the most notable is the Mahesha-Murti cave. The huge, high-relief work of Mahesha-murti( Trimurti) sculpture is considered to be among the most perfect expressions of Indian a art of that time. The 17 foot( 5.2 meter) high Trimurti, showing Lord Siva in the three roles of creator, preserver and destroyer. This sculpture is supposed to be one of the centerpieces of the Indian sculptural tradition.
About Indian ArtPoetry amongst the woods, with all its unparalleled, salient features is an outcome of the quest and creative restlessness of the Pune based innovative artist couple - Charuhas Pandit and his wife, Bhagyashree who have founded the Wood Craft company "Srujan Art". Their quest for an aesthetic, soft yet expressive medium led them to explore these hitherto unexplored possibilities of expression. A perfect medium to express and inherit the legacy of the choicest themes from the vast ocean of centuries old Indian art.
Wood Craft is an ingenious art form which combines the intricacy of wood carving with the delightful creative strains of a work of art. This involves using wood pieces in their natural colours and textures, delicately cutting and creating the best composition and presenting it in the required theme. The result is a masterpiece that is interesting too, owing to its '3D within 2D' illusory effect.
