Wood has been the most favoured carving medium for craftsmen around the world, mainly because of its durability and potential to be carved. Wood sculpture is a product of art that induces consideration about form and space together. Wood provides an excellent medium for artists to express their creativity. Wood is comparatively softer compared to stone and metal. Therefore it can be molded as per the wish of the artist.

In India too, this art flourished in splendiferous styles. Here, the artisans have inherited the art of woodcraft and other crafts from their ancestors. The early statues of the gods were of wood. Wooden statues date back to the ancient times and civilizations. Excavations show early Indian wood sculptures depicting religious and secular themes. Skilled Indian artisans impeccably craft sculptures of Ganesha, Shiva, Krishna, Buddha, and others. They use their hereditary knowledge, expertise, and imagination in sculpting these wood statues. Each state in India displays an individualist style that has created a distinctive niche in the world market. The wooden sculptures from southern India are very famous for their intricate carving works and detailed finish. Idols of god, goddesses and demigods are the most popular themes in these sculptures. The northern parts of India too flaunt a distinct style of wood sculpture.

The wide range of wooden sculptures available at Vedique, comprise of wooden pieces of fine workmanship. They are carefully carved using either softwood or hardwood and are available in the shape of Gods and Goddesses, human figurines, animals and other abstract patterns.
