Indian sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik created a sculpture of the young Syrian child Aylan Kurdi, at a Puri beach on Friday.

Aylan Kurdi and his family, like many others, fled the civil war in Syria to seek asylum in Europe. Enroute, their rubber boat capsized leading to at least 12 deaths. So far this year, an estimated 2,500 refugees have died while crossing over to Europe.​
