We see Cholamandal artists village as a deserted beach in the family photographs of Nandagopal. Looking through these photographs one might get a glimpse of what it meant for Nandagopal to grow up in an isolated yet artistic milieu of Cholamandal and to achieve international fame. The photographs of Nandagopal transporting his sculptures with cranes and lorries tells of the monumental size of his sculptures.
