Puri: Maha Shivaratri is being celebrated with sand art by international sand artist Manas Kumar Sahoo. Sahoo has sculpted a beautiful sand art here near the Light House on the golden sea beach.

In his art, Manas has sculpted the Image of Lord Shiva in the Dhyan Mudra posture amidst the  Great Kailash Hill with messages of “Happy Shivaratri” and “Oh God save us from Corona.”

The 15 feet wide art piece  consumed about 15 tonnes of sand and took him about 7 hours to complete.
