A heartbreaking yet an endearing story has come out from India, where a widower wanted to show his wife their dream houses together that he made a wax statue of her to substitute for her missing presence.
Businessman Srinivas Gupta unveiled the statue at a housewarming party, held last Friday at his new family home in Koppal, in the southern state of Karnataka. The property had been his late wife Madhavi’s idea — but she died in a car crash in 2017 before construction work had finished.
Srinivas Gupta, a resident of Koppal, State of Karnataka, revealed the statue at the said dream house’s housewarming party last Friday.
The whole property and the new housing plan was initiated by his late wife Madhavi.She passed away in 2017 due to a car crash accident, all too soon to observe the house getting actually built. Believing that she would have loved to see it, Gupta ordered a statue in her figure, to commemorate her presence.
Madhavi’s statue is seen sitting on a couch wearing a pink sari and gold jewelry.It’s incredibly lifelike, down to the individual strands of hair around her temples and the lines on her skin. The statue has been commissioned to Shridhar Murthy, artist based in Bangalore.
“The planning for the house was all done by her and we couldn’t imagine entering this new house without her,” said Anusha, one of Gupta’s two daughters. M
adhavi and the two girls had been in the car together during the accident in 2017.Madhavi died at the scene, while her daughters sustained minor injuries. “We had a great bond,” Anusha said. “It all happened in a few minutes when she left us.
We couldn’t digest the fact that she was no longer with us.” The new home was something Madhavi “always dreamed about,” Anusha said — and it didn’t feel right to move in without her.
After the statue was completed and the construction done, the family finally moved in last week.
Madhavi’s statue was the center of attention, with many posing on the couch beside it and posting images on social media, where the story quickly went viral.Her statue will remain outdoors as “she used to enjoy the outdoors,” Anusha said.
“We want her to stay with us, just how she used to be.”
