More Sudarshan Patnaik

This Puri webpage narrates a legend, and claims that sand sculpture has been a folk art since the fourteenth century. It thus places Sudarshan Patnaik within a tradition. Anyway, you may enjoy the pics. on that page, or some others, of Sudarshan Patnaik's work, gleaned from the web, here.

I am a fan of Sudarshan Pattanaik. He is an internationally famous sand artist. He belongs to Puri in Odisha (India) and regularly builds such art on the beach of Puri. He was in the panel of judges in the International Sand Art Festival organised on the beach of Chandrabhaga near Konark in December last. I had visited this Festival.

A photo exhibition of his creations was organised at Bhubaneswar, the Capital of Odisha. I visited it, met him and talked to him there. I took of a photo of myself with him there. This photo is one of my valuable possessions
