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.

  1. 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.

    1. But they ARE preserved – i these pictures, for all to see!

      AWESOME PICTURES, AWESOME SCULPTURES!

      1. Truly beautifull work,but I wish to know how a guy should go about mapping a clife face in sand,for a 40 bye 60 facial,and whats the best way to go about it. Sorry no photo.

    1. 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.

  2. Impressive! My question is: How do they get to visualize, then how do they get to properly transfer their ideas from their mind to something concrete? Is there a formular?

  3. These are amazing but the first thing that came to mind was “someone has too much time on their hands.”

  4. Que lindo me impreciono mucho porque primera ves que veo clases de arte como esos que bello,que bello,que bellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  5. Thank you very much, to all the sculptors, and to noupe.com for posting the photos. Global participation in the creation of beauty is a good thing.

  6. My name is Bilal Saudi, I work as a “Junior Project Manager” in an event management company called “Behind the Scenes – Eventology” in Amman, Jordan.

    We have been chosen by the ASEZA here in Jordan to work on some of the events for Aqaba in 2011. Aqaba was named the Arabic Capital of Tourism 2011 and accordingly a series of events will be implemented to celebrate Aqaba and promote regional and international tourism.

    One of our ideas that was pitched to our client and got great reviews is to have a Sand festival, maximizing on the different kinds and colors of sand Jordan has. The sand festival will concentrate on promoting the beauty of the country’s sand by creating art pieces, generate activities and structures made out of sand. It is a fun, active and inventive festival that will involve the locals and tourists.

    In regards to this comment, I was researching sand festivals online and I found your website. After going through the website I found out that you do sand sculpting and instructing which is very intriguing as we are looking to host a flagship event that would make the headlines throughout the Capital of Tourism year.

    The event could be on a certain period from July till September where the weather is amazing in Aqaba. How can collaborate on this project ? do you offer consultancy ? management ? equipment if any ? logistical input ? what is the number of sculptors that you can provide? Can we receive a quotation or an estimated price offer to organize the whole thing?

    My e-mail (bsaudi@behindthescenes.jo)

    Awaiting your kind and prompt replies.

  7. The sand sculptures celebrate life and seem to speak
    too close to our hearts with their art.

  8. These sculptures are awsome works of art. It is definitely “mind-blowing” I think it is just wonderous that all this csn be done with sand and water. Very talented artists.:)
