Thermocol is the commercial name for the polymer product Polystyrene, synthesized from the monomer styrene. Carving is the act of shaping materials by scraping off certain portions, using a range of tools that possess individual properties. Carving being done on any solid material that holds the chiseled shape is mainly used to make sculptures. Malleable materials like clay, wood, thermocol, melted glass, etc., have broad applications for this purpose. Mr. Laxman Sadupatla, a well-known Thermocol sculpture artist from the Ahmednagar part of Maharashtra, is renowned for his thermocol sculpture works which are in the market for 20 long years. He gives credit to his and his team's imagination and presentation skills for the dedicated creation of these handmade sculptures. The state government has honored him with several awards for his excellence in this area of art.
