An artist and animation professional has created a portrait of Shivaji Maharaj on his birth anniversary. Nitin Dinesh Kamble has used over 46,000 plastic beads to make this portrait. The grand portrait is state-of-the-art conceptualisation. Speaking to ANI, Kamble said, “I have made a portrait of Shivaji Maharaj. I have used 46, 080 plastic beads in it. Plastic is banned in India, but we canít do anything about plastic that already exists. So I got this idea of using this plastic to create something nice. That’s why I created this portrait. I used six different colours in it.” As per Hindu Lunar calendar, Shivaji Jayanti will be celebrated on Mar 12.
