10 Faces in the Sand

Check out this artful crop of sand-crafted expressions

Though sand sculptures are inherently fleeting works of art, an astonishing amount of labor is poured into each project—often requiring teams of architectures or sculptors and nearly 3000 tons of sand per competition. Amongst the most spectacular castles, animals or otherwise themed creations, there exist true masterpieces that appear to come to life on the shore. Showcasing everything from agony to exhilaration, these are the 10 sand-crafted expressions that masterfully exemplify real human emotions.
