Sand Sculpture

SAND SCULPTURES BY SUDARSAN PATTNAIKAs an impoverished child, Sudarsan Pattnaik would go to his local beach and build sand castles. Little did the youngster from Orissa, India, realise his hobby would make him famous and wealthy. These pictures show some of the sand sculptures carved by Pattnaik. This proves that one should continue & strive in any field to get recognition & monetary rewards.

He says that people gather round to watch him create sand sculptures on the beach at Puri, Odissa, Bharat (India). Encouraged by the interest of passers-by, Pattnaik would go to the beach everyday for three hours each in the morning and evening.

 

He has since won prizes at international sand sculpture festivals around the world. He is going steady & pursuing the work with heart & soul. He enjoys the work & people liking his art around the world.

 

 

     His works are mostly based on current world issues, ranging from climate change to world peace.

 

 

A look at work makes one wonder: How nice & great what a dedication & many adjectives in the local language.

 

 

 

Look at his works presenting all the  great themes prevailing in the world.
