Protest sand sculpture created in solidarity with Egyptian uprising

    In Puri, in the eastern Indian state of Bhubaneswar, Indian sand artist Sudarshan Patnaik made this cool sand sculpture in support of the nonviolent uprising in Egypt. If you have any other photos of creative nonviolent actions outside of Egypt in solidarity with the pro-democracy movement there, please email them to me at, and we’ll post the best on this site.
