Durgi, Allagadda and
the important stone carving centres of Andhra
Pradesh. Mythological figures and the stone carvings of the Gods and
Goddesses in the temples in these regions are the typical illustrations of
the stonework. Andhra sculptors use a range of materials from soft stone,
slate stone, Durgi stone to the harder granite stones. The stone
sculptures deserve to be greatly exalted.
Creation Of Living Sculptures
Divine creations are shaped out of formless rocks. The ordinary formless stone becomes the very manifestation of divinity under the skilled hands of the traditional sculptor.
The traditional sculptor relies on his knowledge of Shilpasastra and his perception of divine forms and chisels out finely sculpted specimens that stand out with life-like features. Consequently the sculpture seems to come to life before one's eyes.
