Stone Carving Jali Animal
- The stone used to make this craft is very soft so it requires only finger pressure to chisel the design.
- To begin with, the stone is boiled overnight and then waxed. The desired shape of the animal is created using hand-tools. Holes are drilled in the animal structure with hand drill. These holes are then finely shaped using chisels to form a jaali(open-work). The inside hollows are manually chiseled and the smaller animals are carved inside the bigger animal through the main jaali. And finally, the piece is buffed to finish..
The special thing about this craft is that these are made from 1 block of stone and nowhere any joint is given.
