Puri: Internationally famed sand artist Manas Sahoo on Thursday created a sand sculpture at the Manas Sahoo’s Sand Art Park at Puri sea-beach on the eve of the International Women’s Day (to be celebrated tomorrow).
Sahoo has depicted the vibrant, courageous, brave, tolerant qualities of today’s women in the 12-feet height and 20-feet width sand art.
Giving respect to the women, the sand artist has dedicated the art to all the women of the world with a message “Give Me Wings of Freedom to Fly High.”
In the sand sculpture, Sahoo has shown that today women are ahead of others in all fields of life. Starting from the protection of the country to development of the society and in raising the nation, women are equal to men in helping and cooperating in all spheres. Women are taking steps with the men in protecting the nation as they are full of courage and valour.
Manas and his students took nearly 16 hours to complete the sand sculpture. They used around 20 tonnes of sand to erect the beautiful sand art which has become a centre of attraction for the visitors there.
Most of the tourists who visited the area were seen taking photos and selfies along with the sand sculpture.
