This sculpture was exactly as depicted in your catalog. Flawless craftsmanship!! This item is fragile, but the packaging used for the international shipment was carefully designed and the piece arrived in perfect condition.

He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this craft, and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Gulam Rasool has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $1800.

Nearing his eighth decade, master stone sculptor Gulam Rasool continues to provide for his family, especially his grandchildren.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
