Chander Kant conjures the image of Buddha from seasoned kadam wood. Kant carves the sculpture by hand with admirable detail all around. The bust of a serene Buddha is set upon a lotus throne, honoring his divine essence.

His family has a small workshop that produces wood jewelry and other carvings using chisels and traditional hand tools. Chander regularly conducts workshops and other educational training sessions for thousands of artisans from all over India. He is dedicated to preserving wood carving and other traditional Indian arts. He is a prominently recognized artisan and has received numerous awards.
Chander provides for his two children and is determined to give them every opportunity to succeed in life.
