Indian man installs lifestyle statue of dead wife in newly launched home

An Indian man who recently hosted a house warming party and to grace the special occasion there was a statue of Srinivas Murthy’s wife. Decked in a pink saree and gold jewellery, Madhavi sat atop a sofa, with a smile on her face. Her smile, however, never wore off and the guests in attendance were left speechless upon seeing her

While travelling her daughters to Tirupati their driver tried to avoid a speeding truck on Kolar highway but ended up rear-ending into the vehicle instead.

It was then that 57-year-old Murthy, a businessman from Koppal in Karnataka, who decided to fulfil his late wife’s dream of owning a bungalow. According to the TNM report, Murthy approached over 25 architects but none had ideas that made the construction of the house special for his wife Madhavi.

Eventually, Murthy ended up meeting Mahesh Rangannadavaru, an architect, who suggested the businessman install a life-size statue of his wife in the living room of their new house.

The idea clicked and Murthy approached popular toymakers Gombe Mane on the advice of the architect and life-size silicone statue of Madhavi was constructed upon order.

As for Murthy, he’s happy that his late wife resides in her dream bungalow and her statue reminds him of her presence after her death.
