    Using peepal leaves for his carvings, Kumar explained that these leaves are sacred and do not fade even after drying up. He has also tried carving on palm tree leaves and other tree leaves but found their survival lives to be too short.

    It takes Kumar 15 minutes to one and a half hours to carve a portrait on a leaf. Many people have approached him after seeing his work on social media, requesting portraits of their loved ones as unique gifts for special occasions. He also offers online tutorial art classes for those interested in learning leaf carving.
