The World’s Most Exquisite Woodcarvings Are Being Created by National Award Winning "The Jangid Family" in Rajasthan, India.
Meet the National Award Winning Jangid family – the woodcarving artists of Jaipur who specialise in sandalwood miniature carvings. Mahesh Jangid, and his sons, Rohit and Mohit Jangid, use the simplest tools like small iron sticks, knives, and chisels to carve with extreme precision on very small objects. For this family, it is a tradition that has been passed from one generation to another, and something that they deeply honour.

45-year-old Mahesh Jangid learned the art of woodcarving from his grandfather at the age of seven- His grandfather, Shri. Malchand Ji Jangid, a resident of Churu in Rajasthan, was an amazing sandalwood craftsman who won the national award in 1971 and a special award the very next year from the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Mahesh has ensured that the skill stays in the family by devoting his life to this art form-
Love of detail: Mahesh Jangid at work on a sitar with its many secret chambers.
Mahesh Says: "I will continue to do this work for the rest of my life because carving has no limits. How much we do and how far we go is all up to us. I like that we always get to do new things, new designs, more miniature work, etc. I would not have this kind of freedom with any other job. I am absolutely addicted to my work and so happy that I have the talent to do this,"
”The family works almost exclusively with sandalwood because it is very malleable and has a pleasant, natural fragrance that lasts long." They draw inspiration for their work from history, mythology and day-to-day life in India.
