A new gallery named Celebrity Gallery opened on Friday in Gulshan.
The gallery displays 32 sculptures of different prominent personalities including Sheikh Hasina, Rabindranath Tagore, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Che Guevara, Shakira, Michael Jackson, Shahrukh Khan, Donald Trump,
Bob Marley, Lionel Messi, Rowan Atkinson, Johnny Depp, Charlie Chaplin and others.
All the sculptures have been made from fiberglass by noted sculptor Mrinal Haque, who has made tremendous contribution in the field of mural sculpture at home and aboard.
‘I funded the initiative out of my own pocket since I did not find any sponsor. The reason for making this gallery is to give the mass people a chance to get a glimpse of what the first world countries offer like Madame Tussauds and the likes,’ said Mrinal Haque while speaking at a press conference held at the gallery on Friday.
‘Though I have started the journey with 32 sculptures, I have plans to increase the number up to 60,’ he added.
The gallery will remain open every day for visitors from 12:00-8:00pm
