These religious gifts are artworks from dedicated artisans trying to capture something sacred. The Buddhas, Ganeshas, and crosses are divinely crafted and detailed to be worthy of shrines. For many of the artisans that work through NOVICA, their craft is sacred because it is inherited from family or tradition. Chander Kant grew up with a strong bond to his family. All of his relatives are involved in carving, and he joined them. A religious gift from Chander is made with a care found most often in kin and a skill rarely found anywhere. His father, grandfather, and uncle have earned National Awards for Excellence in handicrafts, and he’s next in line with his religious gifts. So, use a religious gift as a reminder of something sacred that you share with somebody.
