SAY NO TO THE SLOW KILLER Tobacco SANDART Awareness by Manas Kumar Sahoo

On May 31st every year, the world observes World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) that is promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The objective of observing World No Tobacco Day is to reduce tobacco consumption which can lead to deadly diseases like cancer and early death. In this year the theme of World No Tobacco Day 2015 was “Stop illicit trade of tobacco products”.

In this sculpture Mr. Sahoo shows young men start it as fun but falls into the trap. The message behind this sand sculpture is that with each puff of tobacco/cigarette carries a small death and reduces one’s life span each time he/she smokes. The sand sculpture is of 5 feet height made with 5 tons of sand, with a hard labor of nearly 7 hours and with a message “SAY NO TO THE SLOW KILLER”.
