Posted by on July 3, 2012

Most of us have built a sandcastle before, but sand sculptors take this childhood pastime to a whole new level. They use little more than shovels, buckets, and picks to create astonishing works of art that blow ordinary sandcastles out of the water. Maybe one of these 25 incredible sand art sculptures will inspire you to create one of your own next time you go to the beach. But be warned – chances are yours won’t be nearly as epic as the ones you’re about to see.

    These are excellent examples of what has almost become performance art. Watching these being sculpted is a fascinating process. In RIo de Janeiro, where I used to live, I could see these every day when walking on Leblon and Ipanema beaches. Some were even more detailed than your examples, but you do give some excellent ones.
