The artist whose sand art has a reputation of being high on social impact and relevance has created a world record for building world’s tallest sandcastle, reports India Today.

Built at the Puri beach, Pattnaik’s 48.08ft structure surpassed the previous record held by a 45.10ft sandcastle built by Ted Siebert of USA.

Reportedly, the sandcastle took over four days, 45 students from Pattnaik’s sand art institute and around 500 labourers for its completion.

The sculpture preaches the message of world peace and harmony while featuring Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Buddha as its torchbearers.

“I have fashioned faces of world peace champions such as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Buddha on the structure. The design was finalised after a series of scrutiny,” Pattnaik was quoted as telling Telegraph India.

With a Padma Shri Award and several other world records to his credit, Pattnaik hopes to headline a sand art park in his state someday.
