Wood Carving In Pakistan The simplest form of wood carving is “whittling”, in which wood has been cut and designed with knife to create different objects in different shapes and figures. The art of wood carving originated in Pakistan since Gandhara civilization, which is famous for its rock and wood carved sculpture. The history if this art can be traced back from early Buddhist period under the Kushan rulers. Pakistan has a rich civilization and culture and have a wide range of wood forest that’s why many people especially in rural areas still prefer to utilize their this skill of carving to earn the livelihood. The most interesting fact to mention here is that in world war-II, there was too much unemployment. It was the time when in sub-continent, freedom movement was at its full swing and it was also a cause of unemployment. People of Chiniot were to go to Calcutta (India) and Multan (Pakistan). Masons from Chiniot are thought to have been employed during the construction of “Taj Mahal” and “Golden Temple” both are situated now in India. The role of wood carving industry in accelerating Pakistan’s economy and promoting its heritage in international market cannot be neglected. Many foreigners profoundly visit these places and admire the beauty of the art and efforts of craft work but unfortunately our government has not given any importance towards capacity building of local craftsmen in the areas of Chiniot and swat particularly as they are considered as the hub of this art. There are few institutes and vocational training centers which are providing wood working trainings but they cater the need of the selective community. “As long as there is wood and there is man, there will be woodcarvings”
