Asansol-based sculptor Sushanta Roy has paid a unique tribute to Sachin Tendulkar, whose cricketing career approaches its end.

He has moulded a life-size wax replica of the cricketer that has found a place at the Dr. B.C. Roy Club House at the Eden Gardens, where Tendulkar is currently playing his 199{+t}{+h}and penultimate Test match.

The wax statue earned appreciation from Tendulkar himself on Monday. The master batsman was shown the outcome of one-and-a-half months of painstaking work by Mr .Roy and his associates. The sculptor has been working on the replica for the past 15 years.

“During the time of making the wax replica of Sachin, I worked 12 to 14 hours a day on a regular basis,” Mr. Roy told The Hindu over phone from Asansol which he is visiting on Wednesday.

Even though Tendulkar himself praised his work, the perfectionist in Mr. Roy is still not fully satisfied. “I had to make the statue just by seeing Sachin’s photographs and because of that there was slight difference between the skin colour of the replica with that of Sachin’s.”

On the cricketer’s first reactions to the statue, Mr. Roy said: “When I showed him the statue, he shook hands with me and said that the statue is very beautiful. He also posed alongside the wax replica for pictures.”

This, however, is not the first time the sculptor has gifted a famous personality with a life-size wax replica.
