Welcome to Odisha Sand Art Created by Sudarsan Pattnaik
Padma Shri awardee Sudarsan Pattnaik created a beautiful sand art ‘Welcome to Odisha’ at Puri beach. It is a tribute to our beloved state Odisha – the beautiful eastern coastal part of India.
The sand art depicts the famous Chakra of the Konark Sun Temple, the face of an Odissi dancer and the face of a tribal woman. The sand artist’s creation aims at welcoming tourists to the state.
Odisha is endowed with nature’s beautiful creations and is home to a number of ancient monuments and architectural geniuses. Besides these, Odisha is the land of Lord Jagannath, one of the most divine destinations in the country.
