Sandbox Giant: Robot Rhino made of sand. Sand Sculpture Festival 2016. Søndervig, West Jutland, July 2016. Leica M3, Leica 35mm / f1.4 Summicron, 8 Elements

Sandbox Giant

This Sandbox Giant sculpture was my favorite exhibit while we were visiting the Søndervig Sand Sculpture Festival  2016. A huge Robot Rhino.


In 2016, a record audience visited the festival site in Søndervig, where the theme “Africa’s wildlife” attracted a total of 148,200 visitors from near and far. This year’s theme builds upon the same recipe, inviting 40 of the foremost Danish and international sand sculptors. And they have already announced surprises and an exciting set-up. Many are returning sculptors from Søndervig’s first sand sculpture festival in 2003. They know what it takes to impress an expectant audience.

Especially the 200-meter-long and seven-meter-high sculpture wall is a crowd favourite, highlighted as the festival’s main attraction year after year. The site is open to the public during the construction of the various marine and animal sculptures, which begins 10 days before the official opening. Here you can really get an insight into the creative process and experience how top international artists bring life to their creations.
