Wooden artifacts are used for various purposes, starting from home decor, site decoration, functional products to utility goods. Mr. Rukshad Bhagwagar is a master craftsman from Nagpur, who runs an art gallery that exhibits wooden carving finished at their warehouse. He has been in this business for 25 years, employing many people from the locality and training them for the skills required. Here the only type of wood used for the making of wooden art is mango wood. The mango wood which is readily available in India is primarily grown for its fruit but is usually cut down after seven years as it generally ceases to produce fruit. The reason for preferring this wood is because they are extremely durable and possess a unique grain pattern. During the making, the wood is oiled to change the colour and obtain an indented texture. Range of products made at Mr. Rushad’s workspace, includes wooden animals, fish, robots, Buddha sculptures, wine bottles, Christmas trees, seashells, and many more, which owns the potential to attract the attention of people for their finishing and unique look.
