Mindblowing Sand Sculptures from Around the World

April 17th, 2010

Sand sculptures can be very creative and beautiful sources for creativity and imagination. We all have enjoyed our childhood in making sandcastles and sand sculptures on the beaches as our favorite pass time activity, but we never realized that these sandcastles and sculptures can be huge and represent our artistic nature. Let us have a close look at these creative and attractive sand sculptures.

Holy smokes! What a shame it’s only sand! There must be some way of preserving these wonders. It’s a sin to waste such concentrated effort.

no, it’s not sad. The wonder of sand sculptures IS that they are only there for a short amount of time – like ice sculptures. If these were carved into rock or bronze or cement they would be just like every other statue out there.
