India’s renowned sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik has created the sculptures of monuments of all five participating nations BRICS Summit in Goa – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
Sudarshan Pattnaik has created just that in the lobby of a five-star hotel in Goa, the venue for the annual BRICS summit.
“It was a great honour when Prime Minister Narendra Modi explained the importance of all the monuments to the heads of the states. The leaders spent around ten minutes looking at the monuments and also clicked a group photograph,” Pattnaik told.
India’s Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China sitting alongside Rio’s iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, Pattnaik, who has traveled the globe creating his sand sculptures, said he was invited to create “something special” for the BRICS leaders. It took him and his team three days to create the installations.
