For most of us, making sand castles while playing at the beach is pure fun. But for professional sand sculptors, building art from sand is real work. These delightful Pixar-themed sand sculptures show just how elaborate these creations can get.
1. Feeling Brave?
When this great animated film came out a few years ago, Disney marked the occasion by holding a Highland Games Tournament at Epcot. To denote the special area, they used a sand sculpture as the sign, showing Merida, the twins, and some of the princess’s nervous suitors.
2. Toys in the Sand
Announcing movie releases with sand sculptures is nothing new to Disney. They commissioned this great sculpture at the Cannes Film Festival for the 2010 premiere of Toy Story 3.
