About Artist - R. Mani
R. Mani born in 1965 , is originally from Mahabalipuram located in Tamil Nadu state, South India. Mani was brought up surrounded by art. His father, Dhruva Pratap was a well-known sculptor and maintained and restored the sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India, passing on his skills to his son.
R. Mani sources his inspiration from world famous temples of India such as Meenakshi, Khajuraho, Ellora Cave to name but a few. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan style sculptures, the artist specializes on traditional Indian Gods and Goddesses. He works with traditional Indian materials such as Sandstone, Granite and Marble
Holder of two awards from the President of India, he is especially well known for his Buddha sculptures. He imbues his Buddha faces with such serenity and a sense of blissfulness that it’s no surprise they are used by so many to assist in deep meditation in some of the leading meditation centres around the world. His intricate Goddess figures are equally revered and he has exhibited his work both in Germany and the USA.
Note: All sculptures being made from natural stone found in mother earth, there might be naturally occurred erosion such as cracks, spots, or marks. We believe that adds to the one of kind pieces that we sell here at Mystik River.
