Reason for building the Statue of Unity
Sardar Patel’s commitment towards the unification of the princely states for the formation of a consolidated Indian republic and his tireless relief efforts for the refugees leaving Delhi and Punjab and integrating the British colonial provinces that were allocated to India earned him the title “Unifier of India’. And it was in his memory, and as a mark of his contribution to a nation filled with diversities, the idea of the Statue of Unity took birth.
Design and Construction
The massive bronze Vallabhbhai statue produced at a foundry in China was designed by Indian sculptor, Ram Vanji Suthar, a Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri awardee for his contribution in the field of arts. In his 40 years of work life, he has created over 50 monumental sculptures. Speaking of the Patel statue, his son, Anil Suthar, also a sculptor, has described the pose – head up, a shawl clinging from the shoulder, and hands set on his side as if he is set to walk – portrays the true character of the person, his striving persona, and the unmistakable, iron will. After four years of work, the specifications of the structure stand at; height from the base is 240 metres, the height of the base 58 metres, the height of statue 182 metres.
