Star Wars Sand Sculptures: Finally, a Use for All That Sand on Tatooine
June 21st, 2010
I’ve never really had the patience to create an elaborate sand sculpture. At best, I’ve created simple little castles. However, these sculptures are anything but simple. Check out these amazing ephemeral Star Wars sculptures created in sand.
These photos were taken of sculptures from all over the world, so it seems that it’s a recurring theme. Star Wars and sand, sand and Star Wars. Like chocolate and peanut butter, I suppose. I love the Darth Vader sculpture, but the lumpy Jabba one isn’t bad either. And I bet it doesn’t stink like a real Hutt does.
It would have been great to see a time-lapse video of them being created, but even better (and maybe a little bittersweet) to see them waste away when the tide comes in – especially Jar Jar.
