“The Factory” – Sand Sculpture at Canadian National Exhibition

“The Factory” - Sand Sculpture Detail - Canadian National Ex

As I’ve said earlier, I like fine details and being able to reflect on them at a later date. That stand true for this photo of a sand sculpture at the Canadian National Exhibition. The sculpture take several days to create and are incredibly detailed. How the artists manage to keep them standing fascinates me.

The details and emotion in this face are simply beautiful and with the wonderful light, I could not help but want to capture it. if you look carefully, you can see the fine lines left by the sculpting tools as well as just ‘how’ the eyes were crafted. Keep in mind the scale of this sculpture, It’s about 8 feet tall! By the way, it was the 2015 Grand Prize Winner
