Mr. Chand had created these masterpieces (sculptures, designed items) using daily house-hold items, industrial waste and disposable items such as plugs, tiles, broken bangles, other metal scraps and discarded articles. As we all know, our environment is the most vital aspect of life and is a growing social concern. Therefore, the reason behind this particular creation was keeping in mind the growing crisis and various problems of the environment.

This garden portrays a new and improved method of conserving and preserving our environment. It showcases the blend of material things with nature, moulding humanity with nature. Utilizing this new technique can save and enhance our environment, most important of all bringing longetivity for the ecosystem and even for mankind! Who knew garbage could transform into something so beautiful! This ingenious creation has changed the face of not only our nation but the world on the whole.
