Puri: Odisha-based sand sculptor Sudarsan Patnaik today created a seven ft high sand sculpture of Barak Obama to celebrate his victory in the US presidential elections.
Patnaik used about eight tonne of sand and also some coloured sand on the sculpture which bore the message 'Again Congratulation' and the US national flag.
"I congratulate Mr Obama once again through my sand sculpture," Patnaik said, adding he would send a photograph of his creation to the US president.

Patnaik has participated in more than 50 International sand sculpture championships and festivals around the world and won many prizes.
