Sand Sculpture

The art of sand sculpture is a fairly under-appreciated one these days. It's basically one step below origami in the sculpture medium respect-o-meter. Origami wins out just because it has a cooler name.

Still, some companies do operate in this niche market and easily make a tidy profit. They specialize in creating sand sculptures intended to dazzle guests at a special event. Have a look at the sculpture below. It was created for the Celebration Of The Arts Festival 2009 in Charleston, IL on May 1.


  1. this is just sand?? ohh my god it is really perfect !!!


  2. the most impressive part of sand sculptures that once done it dosent look like the material is sand at all.
    great work!!
