The sculptors engraved impressive structures from blocks of marble. Tools like chisels, hammers and hand drills helped them to sculpt their creations. Rubbing stones and sandpapers were used to smoothen the outer surface. Coats of shiny polishes like tin oxides were applied to add luster and glow to the sculptures. Marbles were used extensively for figurative works for the ease of use, remarkable quarrying capacities and durability that increased with ages. The translucent surfaces enabled a uniform and in-dept realistic touch to the structures. The practice of sculpting marble into exotic pieces of art came to India from the European countries. Marble sculpting was practiced in vogue in Italy, Rome, Paris, England from the late eighteenth century. Soudbinine, Bourdelle, Leon Fourquet, Rodin, Victor Peter and Jean Escoula are some world famous sculptors who had left some indelible pieces of marble arts that inspire awe and reverence.

The tradition of Marble sculptures in India began with the carvings of religious deities. Idols of Buddha, Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Lakshmi Devi and Goddess Durga spellbind with their intricate engravings, meticulousness, clarity and precision. Spectacular architectures and royal buildings were established from fine marbles. The Taj Mahal of Agra is a living example of marble architecture built during the Mughal era. Inspired by traditional as well as contemporary arts, the sculptures in marble are visual embodiments of aesthetic creativity and excellent craftsmanship of the regional artists. Other popular themes captured in the sculptures were female figurines with all their feminine charms and graces. Figures of birds, animals and tribal people were also modeled from the marbles. Colored marbles in shades of pink, green, red, gray and white were used along with the pure white marbles. Today the marble sculptures have made entry into the domestic arena as decorative art pieces in the form of figurines, furniture, fireplaces, photo frames, vases, medallions, show pieces, tiles and garden sculptures. The breathtaking creations of marble make for elegant and stylish indoor and outdoor decorations and cherished gifts to the loved ones.
