We often capture memories of our loved ones through photographs and videos so that we can look back and reminisce on the fun times we had together. But this man has taken it a step further by getting a life-sized wax statue of his late wife!
Srinivas Gupta, a businessman from Karnataka, India had everyone in awe when he installed a silicone wax statue of his late wife at his new home during the house warming ceremony. In memory of her, Gupta wanted to make sure his wife was present with him at one of the most significant moments of his life.
Back in 2017, his wife Madhavi, was travelling to the city of Tirupati with their two daughters when they met with a fatal car accident. While her daughter sustained minor injuries, Madhavi didn’t survive, reported India.
But while she was alive, Madhavi’s dream was to own a bungalow and Gupta wanted to make that dream come true. He then decided to build a house in memory of her and to even have her with him once it was completed!
”It is a great feeling to have my wife again at my home, as this was her dream home. An artist Shreedhar Murthy from Bengaluru took a year to prepare my wife’s statue. Silicon was used for the statue for durability,” Gupta said.
“Our artist suggested me to have silicon statue instead of the wax statue as we live in Koppal which is a hot place, and an AC (air-conditioning) cant be open all the time to maintain the wax. So as per the suggestion, we got the silicon statue prepared.”
Photos and videos of the realistic statue soon went viral on social media where many netizens expressed their amazement at Gupta’s tribute to his wife.
