Pattnaik Pays It Forward to Budding Sand Artists

To provide fledgling artists with the training he never received, Pattnaik founded the Sudarsan Sand Art Institute at the Sea Beach in Puri. Several students assisted the artist with creating this four-foot high sculpture of the late Margaret Thatcher. Four hours and three tons of sand were required.
