In a bid to create mass awareness on global warming, internationally renowned sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik created a sand sculpture of 'Green' Durga at the famous Puri beach.
"I have created a sand image of goddess Durga to spread the message to maintain eco-system balance by planting trees," Pattnaik said. The sculpture has the goddess wearing ornaments of green leaves against the backdrop of a burning globe. It symbolises goddess Durga being invoked to save the earth from global warming, the artist said. Ten tons of sand were used to create the seven-feet-high sculpture in five hours.
