"I used about six tonnes of sand with some coloured sand. It took four hours to complete it, he said."
Bhubaneswar, May 25 - Sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik Sunday created a sand sculpture on peace in Odisha ahead of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's visit to India.

Pattnaik created the five-foot sculpture of Sharif and Indian Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi, bearing a message Peace gets a chance, on a beach in Puri, 55 km from state capital Bhubaneswar.

Modi has invited all the leaders of the Saarc countries to his oath-taking ceremony. I would like to congratulate Modiji for his good initiative to invite the Pakistani prime minister. I hope it will create good relations between the two countries, Pattnaik told IANS.

The sculpture of both the leaders also has the national flags of the two countries.

I used about six tonnes of sand with some coloured sand. It took four hours to complete it, he said.

Pattnaik, a native of Puri, was this year conferred with the Padma Shri award.
