Beauty in a marble and the sculptor

When I clicked the following  statues  of Hindu lord Ganesha on 31st August,2018 near Chennai,Tamil Nadu,India, in sculptor’s workshop,I  was upbeat in recollecting the following  thought provoking quotes.
“Your life is a sculpture, every day chip away.”
J.R. Rim
“Every block of stone has a statue inside it

 and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it”. Michelangelo

Sculpture is an art of the open air

“Sculpture is an art of the open air.
Daylight, sunlight, is necessary to it,
and for me, its best
setting and complement is nature”.

My journey of times in stones…Past,present and future

Bengaluru city in India has two sides of the mirror. A grand tag of India’s Silicon Valley on the one side and on the other side dripped in history and architectural values. img_20180806_100621_hdr1 I firmly hold the belief that on every one hundred steps of your journey in Bengaluru you simply stumble upon with present, past and the future.
