Man has statue of late wife created for him

At first, I thought this was a picture of both of them, but this is the actual statue.

 

 

 

Tapas Sandilya, a 65-year-old retired government employee, spent 250,000 rupees (approximately $3,000) on a silicone statue resembling his late.

 

Sandilya’s wife Indrani passed away in May 2021 during India’s second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

The wife wanted him to do this years ago in the event she passed before him.

I agree - to each his own - but this is just creepy

Background looks as if he has her statue in a garage or basement.  I don't need a statue to remember my late loved ones. Everyone is different, though.

LOL Talk about a guilt trip!

I wonder where his next wife will put it? 😝

If these are statues, @San Antonio Gal  they are amazing, but creepy. If it comforts him that’s great, but can you imagine close family and friends having to deal with this.

I'm betting she's lazy and lacks personality.  I hope he remembers to dust her.
