“With the help of 408 already used and thrown away ball pens, I have created this tiny mandap for Lord Ganesha. Moreover, I have taken a small bottle of 1ml to showcase a miniature of the Lord in it, and also tried out my hand in carving a sculpture from a normal used cell battery. This is my way to represent the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi,” revealed Eshwar Rao.

Eswar has the distinction of sculpting a series of miniature art and sculptures related to specific occasions and seasons, and his medium ranges from graphite pencil tips, crayons, soaps, chalk pieces, candles, tamarind and tobacco seeds, rice grains and even whole haldi which form the base of his works.

Talented yet unassuming, Eswar has achieved, “Most Number of Bottles Art” record consisting of 500 bottles art on soaps, stones, chalk piece, color crayons and others as on 26 April 2016.
