Bappa is finally here. The God of new beginnings and remover of all obstacles (Vighnaharta) has come home to bless His devotees on the pious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Padma Shri Sudarsan Pattnaik comes up with yet another masterpiece as he sculpts a sand art of Lord Ganesh on Puri sea beach using 3425 sand laddoos and some flowers.
Surrounding Ganpati Bappa on two sides are two elephant structures bowing down and worshipping the Lord. The sunset in the backdrop gives it a magnificent look.
Praying for 'World Peace', this is famous sand artist Manas Sahoo creating a sculpture of Vighnaharta at Puri Lighthouse Beach. The artist has used nearly 15 tons of sand to sculpt this sand art which is 15ft wide.
