Creepy or Sweet? Man installs late wife's silicone statue in his new home

Guests walking into Shrinivas Gupta's newly constructed home were in for a shock: Seated at the couch, was Gupta's deceased wife, Madhavi who sat smiling, in a pink silk saree. Some visitors could be forgiven for thinking that they saw Madhavi's ghost since she had died three years ago in a fatal car crash.

This was Madhavi's dream home and her family couldn't think of moving in without her. The answer was a silicone statue so lifelike that the guests were speechless when they walked into the industrialist's new house in Koppala district.

Gupta commissioned an artist, Shreedhar Murthy from Bengaluru who took a year to make Silicone statue of Madhavi. "Our architect suggested I get a silicone statue instead of a wax statue as we live in Koppal, which is a hot place, and an AC can't be used all the time to maintain correct temperature for wax," Mr Gupta was quoted saying.

According to an emotional Gupta, his late wife had a strong desire to live in a specially designed house. Unfortunately, she died before she could live in her dream house. "It is a great feeling to have my wife again at my home; this was her dream home. The house was designed as per her wishes and she alone was monitoring the progress of the construction of the house," Gupta said to Mangalore Today.

Reading about this news, some are wondering if this is a creepy way to memorialize, or a really sweet way to remember a beloved.
