Historical monuments of all the five member nations which are part of the BRICS Summit was etched on sand by Sudarsan Pattnaik at the five star resort venue.
World renowned sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik began working on the sculptures 2 days before the BRICS summit, using the sand from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The Padmashree awardee created five monuments–The Great Wall of China (China), Saint Basil Cathedral (Russia), Taj Mahal (India), Christ the Redeemer (Brazil) and Afrikaans Language Monument (South Africa) next to each other inside the Taj Exotica resort, which is hosting the Summit.
“It is a great honour that I get to do such a massive sculpture. The heads of all the participating nations will visit the place where the sculpture is installed. This is the biggest honour for me,” Pattnaik said.
“All the five nations would be connected through sand in the state of Goa which is known for its beaches,” he said, adding that the sculpture would be 30-feet wide and 20-feet broad.
