Wax Statue of Baba Ambedkar Installed in Jaipur Wax Museum

In a significant tribute to the chief architect of the Indian Constitution, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, a wax statue has been unveiled at the Jaipur Wax Museum, Nahargarh Fort. The Founder Director of the museum, Anoop Srivastava, shared the motivation behind this addition, citing the demand from tourists and visitors. The wax statue was inaugurated on December 6, coinciding with Mahaparinirvan Day, commemorating the passing of Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

Demand-Driven Decision

Anoop Srivastava highlighted the decision to create the wax statue was influenced by the numerous tourists from across India who frequented the museum, expressing a desire to see a representation of Baba Saheb. The statue stands as a testament to the enduring popularity of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s legacy and the recognition of his pivotal role in shaping India’s constitutional framework.

Symbolic Placement

The wax statue finds its place within the grandeur of Rashtrapati Bhavan, sharing space with the likeness of another distinguished figure, Bharat Ratna Dr. Abdul Kalam, India’s Missile Man. This symbolic placement aims to capture the essence of two great personalities who have played crucial roles in shaping the nation’s destiny.

Design and Dimensions

Crafted with meticulous detail, the wax statue stands at an impressive height of 5 feet 11 inches, weighing approximately 38 kg. The sculpture faithfully replicates the iconic image of Baba Saheb, depicting him with the Constitution book in hand and adorned in his signature blue suit. This faithful representation serves to evoke the image deeply embedded in the minds of the people.

Inspiration for Generations

Anoop Srivastava emphasized that the life of Baba Saheb serves as an enduring source of inspiration for generations to come. By immortalizing his image in wax, the Jaipur Wax Museum aims to contribute to the preservation and celebration of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s legacy, ensuring that his contributions to Indian society are remembered and honored.
