Behrampur: The students of government-run Industrial Training Institute (ITI) here recently made a giraffe sculpture using scrap items such as scrap iron rods from broken roof castings and other things. The sculpture has now won recognition in Asia Book Of Records for ‘Largest Sculpture Giraffe’.
A total of 35 students of fitter trade took 22 days to put up the 32 feet height and 12 feet wide giraffe sculpture. It weighs about 2000 kg.
