Green Durga

Durga Puja symbolises our eternal journey to self-realisation and not just the victory of good over evil. Preparations at the puja mandaps across the country have completed as the five-day long Durga Puja. The Hindus worship ‘Shakti’ or divine power embodied in Devi (goddess) Durga.

Especially this festival is famous in Eastern part of India. In a unique way Artist praying Goddess Durga to save the earth from global warming at Puri beach of Orissa. Now Global Warming is a serious issue for the Earth which causes the destruction of green environment. Recently hundred world leaders are meeting in New York for the U.N. Climate Change Summit. So this time I created a sand image of Goddess Durga spreading the message to maintain the environment with green plants, said International sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik.

Pattnaik has created a face of Goddess Durga wearing green leaves as ornament and a burning globe behind her. Students of his Golden sand art Institute join hand with him. He used 10 tones of sand and took 5 hours to create this 7 ft height sculpture.

I am worried about the effects of Global Warming so I would like to create awareness about the topic through sand sculpture, said Pattnaik. Since last two year I have created many sculpture on Global Warming not only in our country but also around the World, said Pattnaik. I am requesting to all the Puja committee in our country to spend some money on plantation to save the Earth. Last year Pattnaik got the World champion title by creating a sculpture on the theme of global warming.

Sudarsan has so far participated in more than 39 international sand sculpture championships across the world and won many awards for the country.
