Vishwakarmas arw hardworking as a community and they could not come to lime light because the British hid many of the magnificent sculptures in India, including Belur, Halebidu and Shravanabelagola, which should have been recognised globally as world heritage. This sculpture was carved by Vishwakarmas, whose sculptures are reflected in many temples, gopurams and houses. Vishwakarma is also the creator of Swarna Sri Lanka, the world’s special attraction.
