A sandy tribute to the Tsunami victims The destruction from the Japanese earthquake and tsunami yesterday is slowly coming into focus. The magnitude 8.9 earthquake, the strongest ever in Japan, sent a wall of water through coastal cities, sweeping away homes, inundating farmland, causing fires, and exacting a heavy death toll. International sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik created a sand sculpture to tribute the tsunami affected victims at Puri beach of Orissa. On his sculpture he shows a big face floating on water wave and a signe “Help the Tsunami Victims”.
Today lots of people gathered at Puri beach to pay tribute. I was shocked when I saw the news as an artist I thought to pay tribute through my sand art and I am also appeal to the people of World to support them on this situation. Pattnaik use 8 tones of sand to complete this in 4 hours with his students. . Sudarsan has participated in more than 45 sand sculpture championship and festival around the world and got the World championship title in Berlin 2008 for sand sculpting.Sudarsan Pattnaik Sand Art At Puri beach-at-puri
