  • Project Description

    Sonal Balasuriya, ‘The Spiritual Guild’, Makrana, Rajasthan.

    The project proposes the migration of contemporary stone carving guilds of Jaipur, to Makrana, where white marble has been quarried for centuries creating a landscape of gigantic proportions. These craftsmen will inhabit self-built shafts that rise from the depths of the quarry, attempting to link the liberated with the non-liberated along the cosmic axis. The stone carving workshops will be located along this axis, creating sacred ornaments, mini temples capable of provoking thoughts of liberation or ‘moksha’.
