On the eve of Christmas, international sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik has created a huge sand sculpture of Santa Claus at Puri beach with about 5,400 roses.
Sudarsan created the sand Santa Claus with an installation of red roses and other flowers with the message ”Merry Christmas, Enjoy your Christmas with COVID guidelines”.
Sudarshan created the 50ft long and 28ft wide sand sculpture of Santa Claus with the installation of about 5,400 red roses and some white flowers. He took eight hours for carving and two days for preparation with help of his sand art institute to complete this sculpture.
”We all know the third wave of COVID-19 already started almost all over the World, so we created this sculpture where Santa is spreading a message of following COVID guidelines,” said Sudarsan, a Padma Shri awardee.
”I hope this will set a new record in the record book,” he said.
