As a little boy he used to make ‘gharonda’ (house) from wet sand during rainy seasons after school. He never imagined that one day he would be sculpting ‘moort-roop’ (statues) of heroes from metal cast against national emblems. He was never discouraged by his parents from playing in wet mud. His father, a schoolteacher, rather asked him to join a fine art class.
Later, the boy grew up learning the art and took a degree in Sculpture Art from the University of Rajasthan. He is a full-fledged sculptor today. This is the story of 45-year-old Laxman Vyas, who hails from Nohar in the Hanumangarh district of Rajashthan.
Laxman sculpted over 300 items including statues, various kinds of emblems put on pillars and on the rooftop of the government buildings in the last 20 years at least living in Pink City of Jaipur.
