Sand sculpture, reminiscent of any Indian sculptures can be of multiple shape, size or form. Sand sculpture is native to Orissa which has later spread its root towards whole of India. It can include the above things- a castle, or created in a human, animal, plant or a fantasy form. In India, sand sculptures originated in Orissa
, but later on became familiar in all parts of the country. As this art is comparatively a recent one, it didnt have any historical references. Although not historically proved, the origin of this art is found in the Orissan myths. Sometimes even coloured sand is also used to create sculpture, as in Luilang of China. In making sand sculptures, the goal is to create those objects which appear as an artistic example. Now, many artists have got engaged to prepare sand sculptures in India and such sand sculptures are displayed in large sizes and in complex structures. Though sand sculptures are comparatively new to the culture of India, they are widely accepted by the inhabitants of India.
