Warangal: Mattewada Ajay Kumar, a micro artist from Warangal, has created a miniature Ganesh idol out of wax. The 1.2mm length idol can easily fit inside the eye of a needle. Ajay Kumar surprised everyone by his dextrous action.
A goldsmith by profession, Ajay has been into making miniature items since his childhood. “It took me 12 hours and over five days to carve this idol. I used a microscopic magnifying glass and several sharp and smooth-edged instruments for this. I have also made a miniature gold chain with a locket for this idol,” Ajay said.
The idol has different colours. The crown is golden yellow and the dhoti is in bright red. It even features a mouse the vehicle of Ganesh near the legs and the laddu in the left hand.
Mr Ajay Kumar posted a world record by creating the smallest lock with seven levers in 2004 and it was featured three times in the Limca Book of Records. Some of his miniature works include a fan, violin and scissors made of gold. He has even carved the images of well-known personalities on a rice grain....
