His unique works include stone crafts in bottle, soap carving, wood carving, coal carving, stone carving and tamarind seeds carving.
He is known for his miniature idols in bottles because of which the locals address him as ‘bottle-bhitara karigara’.
Rao doesn’t sell his work and has a personal museum at home displaying them. This time, he is holding an exhibition showcasing Ganesha idols created by him over the last 15 years.
He has been working on such pieces for the last 25 years and has won numerous awards for the same. “I want to take this art form forward,” he said, and hoped that the state government supports him in his effort.
