Why to visit Three Mothers Art Gallery

Three Mothers Art Gallery is a museum that uses Driftwood Sculpture Art to represent the state's rich culture, custom, history, and heritage. The artist Shri Gurumayum Shyamsunder Sharma runs the art gallery and museum, which is housed in a solitary shed-like chamber with a square footage of 1000 square feet. The art gallery was founded in 1978 and is called after the three mothers: motherland, mother tongue, and mother of oneself. 

The museum's artworks connect all of the concepts to the natural roots of the trees. The gallery exhibitions are one-of-a-kind since they are all made from the roots of a single tree. Chairs with animal figures, sculptures of renowned people, and other legendary sculptures are among the museum's most noteworthy exhibits. 

Aside from that, there are works with carved war scenes on wood, indigenous wildlife, mystical beings with bodies that are half human and half animal, and mythical monsters with bodies that are half human and half animal. The artist's creation, titled the Wooden Artistic Figure (Symbol of Peace), was even recognised by the Limca Book of Records in 2005.
