Shehnai Player Statue - Agroha, Hissar, Haryana, India

I was lucky to have been taken by a relative to a temple named Agroha that I could take the picture of this amazing craft. Agroha is located near Hissar city in Haryana state of India.

The artists who created the statue must have created it just as effortfully as the expressive efforts of the statue playing the shehnai. Look at the expression; it's so real! The efforts of the lungs and cheeks to play the flute-like instrument, are so well-crafted. Shehnai is an Indian instrument mostly used during rituals.

In Agroha, Hissar, Haryana, India, a statue of a shehnai player:

  6. But where is the cobra? We usually see a cobra rising up and swaying frighteningly when that flute is played!!!

    What a fabulous statue!

  16. Remarkable statue...I actually spent three nights in Haryana at the home of a friend of a friend before my trip to Agra! That drive to Agra was such an experience - talk about scary traffic. I spent half the ride with my head in my hands, thinking I would never see my homeland again!

  17. @ RNSANE: That's India afterall; everything is chaos, but it's still going on! What a wonder, isn't it?

  18. That's really cool - so realistic, it looks like a human rather than a statue.
