Now here’s a type of talent that you don’t come across online everyday. He has used mainly Styrofoam packaging (the white one’s you get in a naya electronics box), modeling clay for the Garuda and the Lions, aluminuim foil, thin electrical wires and a few cardboard pieces. Also chamal ko bora(jute sack) to create the brick-tiled texture of the ground for the base.
He happens to be Jenish Shrestha who is only 17 years of age but started the making the Krishna Mandir model when he was just 16. Jenish who completed the model in a month’s time is currently residing in South Riding, Virginia. When asked who inspired him to sculpt he proudly states his dad, who is a retired 1st divisional engineer at Department of Archeology. Jenish’s work was also on display at his high school. Aside from choosing our National Heritage sites that are of great magnificent architectural structure Jenish has also made models of various aircrafts and building’s.
