New Delhi :

Leonardo DiCaprio has received a customized version of Oscar from a group of Russian filmmakers celebrating his performance in “The Revenant”.

The trophy the 41-year-old actor has received, holds a Choron instead of a sword, in a substitution symbolizing peace.

DiCaprio shared the picture of the “wonderful gift” on Instagram.

“Thank you to the people of Yakutia for this wonderful gift, especially all of the women who gathered and donated the materials that went into creating the statue.

“As they wrote in their letter, Yakutia is home to the coldest inhabited place not only in Russia, but also on Earth and the region is extremely vulnerable to climate change.  Rising temperatures pose a major threat to its people, their way of life and their natural habitat,” he wrote in caption.

Local women from Yakutia, among others were asked to give half of their jewelry for the statue.
