It is indeed a unique miniature Durga in Odisha.
It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that Rao has mesmerised people with his art work. Earlier he had made sculpture of a woman on a pencil nib to mark the occasion of ‘Women’s Day’.
The unique pencil art of 0.5 inches on the occasion of the International Women’s Day was highly praised. The art was that of a woman on the nib of a pencil.
It seems unbelievable to think that on the tip of a pencil a sculpture can be created. But Rao had perfectly carved the woman.
Rao had created the sculpture in order to spread awareness about women empowerment, women safety and women’s rights in the present Indian society.
