Tomato Santa is the world’s largest tomato and sand Santa facility. [сделана] of 1.5 tons of tomatoes on Gopalpur beach in Odisha,” the teacher said on Twitter (the social network is blocked in the Russian Federation). According to Pattnaik, his creation rises 27 feet (8.2 m) above the ground and extends over 60 feet (18.2 m) wide.

“My students came together to complete the sculpture. Merry Christmas 2022,” the artist congratulated the public on the Web.

Many people began to come to the beach of Gopalpur to see with their own eyes the tomato Santa Claus and, perhaps, to share their Christmas wishes with him.

By the way, for Pattnaik, the installation was not the first creative incarnation of a good magician in his career. In a conversation with journalists, he explained that he had previously liked to create general sculptures on the occasion of Catholic Christmas. However, the use of tomatoes and sand to bring the idea to life was a debut for the teacher and his pupils.

It should be noted that the works of the self-taught Indian sculptor are popular all over the world, and some of them even entered the Guinness Book of Records. In Russia, the creator received recognition in 2017, when he received a medal of the highest level at the X Moscow Sand Art Championship at the Kolomenskoye State Museum. The prize was awarded to the master for the sculpture of the elephant-headed Hindu god Ganesh.
