Delhi’s Waste-To-Art Park For G20 Summit, A Step Towards Eco-Friendly Garbage Disposal

The New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), in collaboration with the Lalit Kala Academy, opened a Waste-to-Art Park at Kautilya Marg in Delhi's Chanakyapuri area. 22 sculptures made from scrap metal, of national symbols, animals and birds of the G20 member-countries, are part of the installations in this park.

The park has a diverse array of sculptures of the national birds and animals of the G20 member nations, which are made up from scrap materials. Each sculpture has a plaque with information about the country and its national bird and animal.

Lieutenant Governor (LG) VK Saxena inaugurated the commemorative park, which features replicas of national birds and animals of participating countries in the form of sculptures and art installations made from scrap metal. "Development ki Dilli mein bahaar aa gayee hai (Delhi's development has been enriching)," LG Saxena said.

At the entrance of the 'Waste-to-Art' park is an installation of India's national bird - Peacock. The artists have used iron bars, automobile parts, metal plates, wire-mesh, rims, chains, ball bearings and other scrap material for handcrafting the sculptures.

The national animal of the US, American bison, also known as the American buffalo, is enhancing the beauty of the waste to art park. The American bison was named the national mammal of the United States on May 9, 2016.

The G20 Park also showcases the South Korean Magpie. The magpie is called "gachi" in Korean and is a symbol of harmony and good luck.

Golden Eagle, the national bird of Germany is also one of the sculptures installed in the park. It is the symbol of German statehood and its rich traditions.
