From sculptures with religious undertones to giant mythical creatures, Susanne Ruseler’s sand sculptures are so full of intricate detail and subtleties that painting over them would make them look like statues.

Ruseler, who is based out of the Netherlands and has exhibited her work across various locations in the world, including Toronto, St. Petersburg, South Korea, Tel Aviv and Madrid, discovered her knack for making sand sculptures back in college. Some of her work includes a mermaid-like creature nestling among some scaled rocks, the lion of St. Mark and a women resting with her baby in what looks like a scene reminiscent of Jesus’ birth.

The textures and attention to detail Susanne Ruseler captures in the sand sculptures are impressive and stunning.
