Why this is a
Masterpiece

Chosen and explained by Yoshio SUGIMOTO "A Fortunate Chance". When the South India exhibition gallery opened at Minpaku in 1996, Mr. Rajan gave us advice on the technique of lost wax casting, after being recommended by an Indian counterpart. This was a fortunate chance for us to collaborate after a previous encounter in India. In 1990, a friend in Chennai introduced and helped me to visit a relative, Mr. Rajan, at his workshop in the city. At that time I was working for Nanzan University.

History of the Object
This is the statue of a deity made by Mr Rajan, a leading copper and brass craftsman in India.
