Pursuit of Happiness

Made Of Clay

Patience and acceptance are what sculpting has taught Akshay Munjal, CEO, Hero Vired, as he turns to the craft for relaxation  

In 2012, Akshay Munjal decided to embark on a Herculean task—of sculpting the Greek God himself. To up the difficulty level, the CEO of Hero Vired artistically combined two of Hercules’ nine tasks. The result? A clay figure of Hercules stepping on a lion and shooting an arrow. “It was tough because the base was the lion with Hercules’ foot emerging from it,’’ says Munjal, adding that it must have easily taken him three months to finish his most prized piece.
