I expect it's quite a privilege to carve these Buddhas....

What kind of process are they using? Casting? Carving?
Jan 28 2013 08:38 GMT senna3
Paulina and Doris, they use mainly marble, but also alabaster for the sculptures. We didn't see the initial process, only the last stage which was done with electric equipment as you can see in the picture above.

They must have been using hand chisels before the sanding of the finish. I am surprised that they do not wear face masks with all the dust. Amazing work.
