150 Sand Sculptures that Narrate Stories in Mysore

Art can take form out of no-where and any-where. One living example is the sand artist from Mysore, M.N.Gowri. Give her some wet sand and she will narrate a story out of it.

Sculpting the heap of wet sand from top to bottom is a great skill and the talent is beyond any match.
Do you remember when was the last time you built those little sand castles at the beach? Not really clear, right? But this aspiring sand artist has held on to sand, molded it with some water and gone on to create massive structure.

She is the creator of the Sand Museum situated on the Chamundi Hill Main Road in Mysore.
Charged with an entrance ticket of Rs.40 for adults and Rs.20 for children, this is yet another must see place in Mysore. None would leave Mysore without visiting the temple atop the most sacred hill of Chamundi. These sand sculptures lie by the road side just beneath the hill. So, it would not consume much time in searching or travelling to the venue.

Our suggestion is even though you are not an ardent art lover; you must make it a point to see how heaps of sand have been sculpted into beautiful narration. And as for art lovers, one can spend hours staring at the compressing and engraving done in every creation. Every face made here holds that aesthetic beauty.

Let the pictures speak about this great talent, although they are no match to visualizing the sculptures in real life.
