Sand Art World Tourism Day




Sand Artist: Manas Kumar Sahoo

27th September 2013, The worldwide celebration of “World Tourism Day”, encouraged the reputed international sand artist Mr Manas Kumar Sahoo to create a sand sculpture at the golden sea beach of Puri, distance of 65 km from Bhubaneswar the capital city of Odisha.

Since 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organisation is celebrating “World Tourism Day” on September 27. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness on the role of tourism within the international community and to demonstrate how it affects social, cultural, political and economic values worldwide. The development of science and technology & speedy transport has brought the people of different nations to come closer to each other. This has resulted in people moving from state to state as tourist to come closer and know each other’s habit, taste and culture.

The artist Mr Manas Kumar Sahoo has prepared Statue of liberty, Tower of Pisa, Eiffel tower, Big Ben, Taj Mahal, Lotus temple etc. about 10 ft height, and by using tones of sand. In this single sculpture Mr. Sahoo has shown different reputed monuments & towers of different countries to indicate closure of each other by development of tourism. The nice idea of this preparation is appreciated by lover of art and culture, visitors, tourist & people of locality. By preparing this sculpture the artist also wants to give the message of “World Tourism Day”.
