Sculptures in the sand at Eretz Israel Museum

A dozen int’l sand sculptors make magic with 700 tons of sand.

By Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Give a dozen talented sand sculptors 700 tons of Israeli sand, and what do you get? Fifteen awesome works of art at Tel Aviv’s Eretz Israel Museum.

“Every sculpture was made by one sculptor in 16 days,” says artist Baldrick Buckle. “The sand is a mixture of some sand that’s close to the Dead Sea and some of the local quarry towns to give us the best formula for working in sculpture.”

Designs were inspired by the Bible, popular fairy tales and super heroes. The exhibit was organized through the Sand Sculpture Academy from the Hague, Netherlands.
