    • Thanks for your kind words Veronica. It’s truly awesome to see these artwork, and all the detail and think about all the meticulous planning, and hours and hours or work that went into creating it. Wishing you a great Sunday and new week.

  1. I love sand sculptures – there’s a Russian artist who is amazing (forgotten the name at the moment, but they do work all over the world) and Ray Villafane dabbles (though his main work is in pumpkins….) It’s a very underrated artform. #WaterThursday

    • Hi Lydia, Thanks for popping in here. I will have to search and see if I can find more info on the Russian Artists. We are in BC Canada and have an annual sand sculpting competition about 30 minutes drive from home. We in fact visited the area about two weeks ago and hope to go again when the competition is over and open to the public. It’s so so good and I admire those artists.

  2. I’ve seen these works of art many times and am always in awe of the artists who build them. Such talented people. But I hate the thought of them being washed away by the tide.

    • Hi Hugh, Fortunately these will not be washed away as it’s not near enough to the water edge. I think they will mainly just erode with time. I totally agree, it’s such high level of art and masterpieces.

  3. These are stunning. By chance, did the artists, sculptor’s say how long it took to make them? And I wonder what the did to the sand to keep it from blowing away in the wind. I would think wet sand wouldn’t blow as easy but these look dry.
    Have a wonderful week!
    Take care and best wishes.

    • Debra, The time to build will depend on the size and the design, but it can take weeks to months.
      The sand is compressed together in wooden or plastic forms to remove most of the air, the less air, the stronger the bond. After the sculptures are completed, they are sprayed with a diluted mixture of 20 percent environmentally-friendly white wood glue and 80 percent water.
