ARTHISTRY is a fine wooden hand carving studio with an experience of over 2 decades that brings together the collections of exclusive creations that constitute the true essence of artefacts.
With the open to learn attitude, each artisan in team ARTHISTRY is given utmost freedom for constant innovations. Today, we take immense pride in unveiling one of the finest sculptures of LORD BALAJI, a detailed depiction of LORD VISHNU which is extremely beautiful to behold and reminds us of his grace.
The main idol is meticulously hand-carved out of a single 10 feet tall wooden log. The mesmerizing feature of the idol is the Garland around the Lord Balaji idol which is individually turned, hand-carved & assembled exactly the way the original flower garland is made. The Thilak & the earrings are the highlights adding life to the idol.
The team of over 18 skilled artisans including the carpenters, carvers, polishing workers took over 2 years to carve this masterpiece. In order to accord rock-solid natural seasoning of the idol as it has its own auspicious values, the idol wasn’t finished in a single stretch.
The selection of wood itself requires noteable experience and we, the Team ARTHISTRY are known for their continuous innovations. Depending upon the requirements, we use various range of wood available in India & abroad. Some of the with which we have worked with are Shivani Wood, Teak Wood, Rose Wood, Etheega, Devdhar, Padok, Mahogany and many more. This particular Masterpiece is made out of Mahogany wood, one of the most expensive woods for every right reason, it is highly durable, water-resistant, and easy to work with.
Upon finalization of the material to be used, the making process of the idol was fairly nuanced : Firstly, the structure began with the wood setting, followed by a rough life-size sketch, rough outer work, initial carving, detailed carving, fine-tuning, rough & smooth paper emery of different grits of sandpaper, and lastly, multiple stages of polishing work. Overall, this representation of Balaji sculpture stands out for its majestic, exuberant, and luxurious decoration.

This piece is a great sample of our artists’ technical skill and mastery. The detailing speaks it all.
Most importantly, as artists, we realize our duty to protect the environment, so we use only the tree woods that are cut during road widening, construction of bridges, or any other unavoidable conditions and not cut just for our requirement.
We are determined to deliver the impeccable piece that our clients desire for. And this majestic creation has been the outcome of our team of experts carrying years of experience in the field. We have been successful in delivering every demand of an art piece as a masterpiece.
