The Story: After Ivory poaching was banned in the late 80's in India, carving craftsmen have started working on sandalwood or other softer woods, for it is easy to carve and has a beautiful fragrance. The community of carvers is however, still known as “Hast daant waale” or Ivory Carvers. In the town of Bahadurgarh, near Rohtak in Haryana, the community of carvers now practice their craft on wood. The ‘Bondwals’ have been in this profession for over a hundred years and seven generations.

The craftsmen create home decor,serveware, jewelry and utility products like lamps, jewelry boxes out of finely carved wood. Craftsmen begin by cutting the pieces of wood into uniform blocks with a hack saw. Then they make a drawing of the motif to be carved on the piece and start chiseling out the material using the dentist’s drill. Different kinds of heads are used for different tasks, and some of the tools’ heads are so fine that they can reach inside extremely small grooves.

With an undercut technique, they carve exceptionally intricate objects enclosed within a carved shell. This gives a stunning Jali like appearance to the sculpture.After carving out the motifs, the piece is buffed on a machine which has fibres that rotate and polish the wood, to give a smooth finish. Sometimes the piece is also varnished, if required.

Every motif has a story to tell. Motifs & themes are taken from Panchatantra, predator-and-prey, flowers, animals and birds dominate the designs, with almost lifelike images emerging from the grains of fragrant wood. Predators and preys are carved together in some of the pieces to show peace and harmony; such is the amount of detail prevailing through each process from conceptualization to execution.
