Towering Sand Sculpture in Germany Breaks World Record for Tallest Sandcastle #ArtTuesday

via My Modern Met

If you love larger-than-life land art, be sure to add Duisburg to your art-inspired itinerary. Throughout the month of September, the world’s tallest sandcastle will be on display in the German city, exciting locals and tourists alike with its colossal size and intricately sculpted details.

Measuring an unprecedented 55 feet (16.68 meters), the ephemeral work of art is composed of 3,860 tons of sand. Featuring recognizable landmarks like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Great Buddha, and the Acropolis, the castle showcases historic monuments and popular attractions from iconic locations around the globe. With this theme, it is fitting that the designers and sculptors that make up its team have come from all over the world in order to work on the piece, which took 3 weeks to complete.
