About the 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, maintaining and restoring sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India. Then passing his skills on to his son.
R. Mani sources his inspiration from world famous temples in India such as Meenakshi, Khajuraho, and Ellora Cave to name but a few. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan style sculptures, the artist specializes in 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 for his work, he is especially well known for his Buddha sculptures. He imbues his Buddha faces with such serenity and a sense of bliss that it’s no surprise they are used by so many to assist in deep meditation. Some of the leading meditation centres around the world carry his work. R. Mani's intricate Goddess figures are equally revered and he has exhibited his work both in Germany and the USA.
