Sand is always a popular medium for artists; it can be used as a prop, and in many cases, as the medium itself.
The creations of extraordinary sculptors can cover everything from making political statements to celebrating something as interesting and benign as communicating congratulations to Slumdog Millionaire, as famous sand artist Sudarson Pattnaik recently did, which you can see in the gallery.
Pattnaik’s creation took over 5 hours to construct, while using about 5 tons of sand to put together eight Oscar trophies on a 25 foot long movie reel. He did have help from some of his students, of course.
