BHUBANESWAR: Prior to the Rath Yatra, an artist based in Puri Saswat Ranjan Sahoo created three miniature Holy Trinity floats out of matches. Using 4,830 matches, Saswat created the sculptures in 18 days. While the height of Lord Balabhadra’s chariot is 11.4 inches, Devi Subhadra’s is 11 inches and Lord Jagannath’s chariot is 11.5 inches. The floats were decorated with ‘sarathi’, parrots, horses and other carvings which are an integral part of the Trinity floats.

Originally from Puri, 19-year-old Saswat has been creating sculptures with matchsticks since the pandemic. While his first sculpture was that of Lord Jagannath where he used 7,780 matches, his works include a miniature version of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir.
