Puri: World famous sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik created a 3D sand art in order to raise awareness about COVID-19. He did so at Odisha’s Puri beach where he drew two Santas wearing a mask and holding a bigger one which said, “Use Mask Stay Safe.”
Not only did he do so to spread awareness, he is also making an attempt to enter the Limca Book of Records.
He shared the images on Twitter. The caption said, “Attempted for another world record on 3D SandArt. World’s biggest mask with Santa Clauses on 3d SandArt with message Use Mask Stay Safe.”
The creation was 120 ft long and 50 ft wide and was made on 6000 sqft area on the beach.
It was not just Pattnaik who made this. Around 20 students from his art school helped him make this art. He also stated that with the deadly pandemic still around us, it is absolutely imperative to wear masks as well as practice social distancing at all times.
Pattnaik had received an email from the Limca Book of Records to make this attempt. “For the last 20 years, I have been doing sand art during Christmas and set many records in the Limca Book of Records. This year also, I have attempted for a world record by creating the 3D sand Santa with a mask over a 6000 sq ft area.”
This attempt is made in the bid for breaking his previous one where the artwork was made over 4900 sq ft area.
