World Water Day 2017: Sand Artists Spread Awareness


Bhubaneswar: Acclaimed sand artist Manas Kumar Sahoo has created a five feet high and 15 feet long sand sculpture on the Puri beach on occasion of World Water Day on Tuesday.

The sand sculpture titled “Thousands have lived without love, not one without water” compares each drop of fresh water with the holy water treated with respect in religious places. It suggests that the life giving property of water is essential for the very survival of flora and fauna.

Similarly, students of international sand artist Sudarshan Patnaik have also created a sculpture on the beach to spread awareness on water conservation.
