Sculpture Rapture




These are some "on the spot" pencil sketches of Buddhist sculptures engraved on the walls of Kanheri Caves in Mumbai. The experience made me realise and appreciate the sheer talent and perseverence of the ancient scuptors..I didn't do much shading here, but tried to capture the form and mood of the sculptures.

the sketch on top captures the calm of the Lord. A great piece of work, minus the finishing touches. Alas... these restless seekers. :-)
