Amid the ongoing BRICS Summit in Goa, Heads of the States visited the sand sculptures of monuments of all the five member countries created in the lobby of the BRICS Summit Hotel in South Goa.
India’s renowned sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik has created the sculptures of monuments of all five participating nations – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
While Taj Mahal represents India, other countries are represented by the Great of Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, St. Basil’s Cathedral at Moscow’s Red Square and the statue of the South African leader Nelson Mandela.
Sudarsan Pattnaik said he felt privileged to create sand sculptures of the five BRICS Nations at the Summit in Goa. “I felt honoured when BRICS leaders took photograph in front of my sand art” he said, thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving him this opportunity.
