Sand World

Sand World is a tourist attraction in Travemünde at the Baltic Sea. They show sculptures made of sand... We've been there yesterday, early afternoon, sun high on the sky and temperatures around 35° (Celsius, measured in the shadow). I didn't think of using a sun blocker, so I got not only pictures, but also a hefty sunburn. Anyway it was quite a lovely day... Smile

The motto of this year's exhibition is "Circus". The exhibition covers pretty much everything. A few examples are: The Roman circus, the Russian, Asian and American circus, and personalities like Oleg Popow and Houdini. The sculptures have a height of up to 6 meters. More information can be found at the Sandworld homepage.

These pictures show only a fraction of the exhibition. I hope Irma will post some more... Smile

Thanks for your comments Smile

A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.
