An Indian artist who specialises in miniaturised versions of everyday objects has celebrated the forthcoming Hockey Men’s World Cup by creating, what he hopes, is the smallest hockey stick in the world!
The artist, Satya Narayan Maharana, has carved a tiny pair of wooden hockey sticks.
One of the sticks measures one centimetre (.39 inches) tall and one millimetre (.039 inches) wide, whilst the other is only five millimetres (.196 inches) tall and one millimetre wide.
Maharana said he is now applying to have the smaller of the two sticks certified as the world’s smallest hockey stick by Guinness World Records.
He said that as the Indian state of Odisha is hosting the 2023 Hockey World Cup, it’s his way of wishing good luck to all the players.
