The statue made out of beechwood is in its final stages and on completion, it will be shipped to Chennai.

It is the work of nine people for two years that made the state possible. Nagappan is also checking into the possibility of Guinness World Records.

There are 400 big and small carvings of different characters from the epic 'Mahabharata' in the sculpture. The priceless statue is no yet priced.
