Cow dung art gains notriety in India


Express April 09, 2010

An artist in India's central Gwalior city has adopted a unique concept to make statues out of cow dung.

Called Gobar art, statues of gods are made out of cow dung. Dilip Goyal has been practising this art for many years. He now plans to set up a training center so that people can learn and promote this art.

His ambition is to make a museum in Madhya Pradesh state like Madame Tussauds in London. He has made around 75 statues of different gods and goddess. The statues are 2 feet tall and he is planning to work on bigger statues.
