For the past seven or so years, a Florida company has traveled to Edgewater Mall in Biloxi, MS, to “build” an immense sand sculpture.
Before we left for the frozen North, I got a chance to take some photos and learn a bit more about this project.
According to the local newspaper, a three-person team from Sandsational Sand Sculpting of Melbourne, FL, spent two weeks on hands and knees (and later, I assume, ladders) creating this:
Pretty cool, huh?
It features — in great detail — a castle, dragons, knights in full armor, and a damsel in distress, and while I don’t know for certain how big it is, you can rest assured it is HUGE.
One of the team members said it took them two days just to bring in all the sand — 75 tons of it!
Using only sand and water, with detailing instruments such as spoons, knives, and brushes, the team worked two weeks to bring the Medieval scene to life.
It will be on display through April.
