Bhubaneswar: In a tribute to Lord Shiva ahead of Maha Shivaratri, Jatni-based artist L Eshwar Rao has created miniature sculptures of the Shiva Linga.
Eshwar has carved the Shiva Linga on a pencil tip and on chalk inside a 2 ml bottle. He dedicated two days to each sculpture. While the pencil tip Shiva Linga is around 1/2 cm in height, the Shiva Linga inside the bottle stands at a height of around 1/2 inch.
With a distinction of sculpting a series of miniature art and sculptures, Eshwar has been practising the art form for the last 20 years. His unique works include stone crafts in bottle, soap carving, wood carving, coal carving, stone carving and tamarind seeds carving.
