A Record on Stone
India’s Longest laterite sculpture - “Natural Harmony” - Loutolim.

"Maendra Jocelino Araujo Alvares of Goa has chiseled a monumental 14m by 5m laterite rock carving of Mirabai, the legendary saint. Entitled The Natural Harmony, the sculptured figure was carved out of a huge rock which Maendra came across within his family property at Khattem.

It is a monolithic, low-relief design which took him 30 days to execute. He started work on August 1, 1994 and completed it on September 5, 1994.

He executed the project because he wanted his home state Goa “to be known for something more than its beaches, churches and temples. Something new."
