    Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the 192-meter tall Shivaji statue in Maharashtra on 24th December, 2016. The iconic statue, slated to cost Rs 3,600 crore, will be installed on a patch of rock spread over 16 hectares in the middle of the Arabian Sea.

    A father-son duo based in Noida near the national capital, who bagged the contract for making Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s statue for Gujarat, will be designing and sculpting the statue of Shivaji to be set up mid-sea. The sculptors Ram VanjiSutar and his son Anil of the Ram Sutar Art Creations Private Ltd have till date designed and sculpted three statues of Shivaji for different projects.
