Nek Chand's outsider art : the rock garden of Chandigarh by Lucienne Peiry( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over forty years ago, Chand worked as a road inspector in northern India. Each evening after work, he mounted his bicycle and carried - by the hundreds - stones that he found in the foothills of the Himalayas. In an abandoned jungle clearing, He built sculptures by combing these stones - which he believed possessed a soul - with urban debris: corroded wires, used sheet metal, detached bicycle parts, broken bracelets, and abandoned tubes and tires. He created a "kingdom of gods and goddesses," peopled by characters and animals. Today this kingdom covers more than thirty acres.--Back cover
