Sudarsan Pattnaik, an Odisha sand artist, has mesmerised us once again with his art on the occasion of Diwali. He used more than 2,000 clay diyas to make a sand art of Goddess Kali at Puri beach. Pattnaik shared the magnificent image of the sand construction on the beach with the blue sea in the background on Twitter.


He wrote, “On the occasion of #Diwali My SandArt of Goddess Maa Kali with installation of 2256 diyas and a message of ” Have a #GreenDiwali, #SafeDiwali “, at Puri beach in Odisha. #HappyDiwali.”

Pattnaik made a sand sculpture of Lord Ganesha using 7,000 seashells on Puri beach during the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations this year. Pattnaik shared a photo of his sculpture with a comment wishing everyone Lord Ganesha’s blessing and stating that this may be the first sand installation to use seashells.
