Sudarshan created the 50-foot long and 28-foot wide sand sculpture of Santa Claus with installation of about 5,400 red roses and some white flowers. He took eight hours for carving and two days for preparation with help of his sand art institute to complete this sculpture.
"We all know the third wave of COVID-19 already started almost all over the World, so we created this sculpture where Santa is spreading a message of following COVID guidelines," said Pattnaik, a Padma Shri awardee.
"I hope this will set a new record in the record book," he said.
