By Madhuri

The artist, Sumesh a mechanic by profession began work on the statue immediately after he heard about Jayalalithaa's death. During Ganesh Chaturthi , he had sculpted an idol of lord Ganesha using honeycomb wax.

''Honeycomb is an eco-friendly medium as it can be used again if necessary. If one wants to remove the colour used in the sculptures it can be done easily by dipping it in mild hot water,'' said Sumesh. He further said that he will be handing over the sculpture to his alma mater Government Higher Secondary School in Kuniamuthur, on Monday.

Jayalalithaa passed away on December 4 after a prolonged struggle with ill health. She was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai on September 22nd due to dehydration and fever.
