Movie-Themed Sand Sculptures
The Weston Sand Sculpture Festival Showcases Beachy Talent

The annual Weston Sand Sculpture Festival showcases the most talented sand sculptors from all over the world. This year’s festival was no different and featured several eerily realistic movie-themed sculptures including a gigantic Gollum and a larger-than-life Alfred Hitchcock.

Each of these sand sculptures takes hours upon hours to complete, not including time to plan the exact design. The sand sculptors have to work tirelessly so that their creations exude the authenticity required to shock and awe viewers. One such awe-inspiring sculpture is that of E.T., the iconic 1980s alien. The extra-terrestrial is shown holding a pay phone, trying to phone home. Everything from his wrinkled face to his long, dexterous fingers has been planned and thought-out so that E.T. appears eerily realistic.

While sand sculptures might not appear in many museums and galleries, they are still an incredibly difficult artistic medium. The amount of dedication required to create a realistic-looking Jack Sparrow or Hitchcock out of tiny grains of sand is unimaginable, but the resulting sculpture is absolutely breathtaking.
