STORY: A group of seven artists have come together to create replicas of Seven Wonders of the World using metals scraps in New Delhi.
The Indian capital’s South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) converted a landfill site into park to house the replicas. The initiative is part of Indian government’s ‘Clean India’ project aimed at spreading awareness about discarded materials in the city.
The SDMC provided materials from the scrap yards to make the replicas.
“Our plan was to take the scrap lying in various parts of the city and repurpose it thereby creating awareness among people,” said one of the artists, Zakir Khan.
The park which is planned to run to natural energy such as solar panels and wind mills is expected to attract thousands of visitors.
The park features replicas of the Taj Mahal, Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Rome’s Colosseum, the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
