Interstate Stone Sculpting Camp was held at The Dravidian University, organized by Karnataka Shilpakala Academy. The camp was for fifteen days, and the Shilpakala academy sends its own recognized twenty sculptors to sculpt the statue with ten senior Sculptors and ten junior sculptors. Different types of cement sculpting, stone carving, fiber casting, and metal casting are being organized in different states of India by Shilpakala academy. There was a reborn of Shilpakala academy for the modern age to get the past back to the present age. We were able to find all the stone carving and sculptures were sculpted by ancient people in the temples and historical places. Shilpakala started to choose and pick the most skillful and trained sculptor or artists to show their best work on the present status to change the trend.
Senior sculptor, Mr. Keshav and junior sculptor Mr. Palaiya sculpted Thiruvalluvar's statue, which took almost 12 to 13 days. Thiruvalluvar, a poet-saint, is regarded as a cultural icon by Tamils. He is also known as Valluvar, was a celebrated Tamil poet and philosopher. His famous work is Tirukkuṛaḷ, a collection of couplets on ethics, political and economic matters, and love. His flour is dated variously from 4th century BCE to 7th century CE based on his writings’ linguistic analyses.
