Puri: A sand sculpture wishing the world 'Happy New Year 2019' has been created by international sand artist Manas Sahoo at his Sand Art Park in Puri on Monday.
The sand art of 12 feet in height and 15 feet in width displays some of the famous monuments around the world. Sahoo and his students worked tirelessly on the work of art for around 16 hours to spread the message of 'World Harmony'.
Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, Big Ben in London, Eiffel Tower of Paris, Colosseum of Rome, Sand Valley Cathedral of Moscow, Taj Mahal of India and various other monuments of the world are part of the sculpture.
Sahoo through the sand sculpture aims to spread brotherhood and love among countries as if the various nations around the globe consisting of various religion and castes were tied to one thread of a garland.
It is made on the eve of this New Year to wish good relationship, love, and peace among various nations consisting of various religion and castes. Sahoo has wished may this New Year be a new light of hope in spreading happiness.
