Art of Wood-Carving        

Sculpting is perhaps one of the oldest techniques of creating artifacts. Throughout human history sculptures have been created using several methods; Wood-Carving being the most prominent among them. Although the metal-carving scores high on the scale for longevity, but wood-carving has been practiced since prehistoric times.

Ancient civilizations of Egypt and Indus Valley made extensive use of Wood-Carving. European settlements in the middle ages have produced scintillating pieces of art carved on wood. Advent of Christianity during early centuries of Common Era experienced a little growth but Wood-Carving culture reached its pinnacle in 12th century AD, when it flourished in the entire continental Europe and Eurasian lands defining the cultures of the regions.  

The presence of innumerable wood carved pieces in the temples and historic sites, is the perfect proof to the practise & evolution of wood carving, since ancient times. Another major factor which has influenced the emergence of Wood-Carving, is the geographical availability of appropriate wood to be carved.
