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.
