Sand Sculpture of the Tower of Mordor by Leonardo UgoliniOne does not simply sculpt the tower of Mordor ... right?Sand artist Leonardo Ugolini (featured before on Picto) sculptedBarad-dûr, the Dark Tower of Sauron in Mordor from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and lived to tell us about the build process.Watch Ugolini create the basic shape of the tower and then add in details using mini-spatula and other sand sculpting tools. Then ... his imagination took a leap and he was transported into Mordor and had to run away from the Eye of Sauron!#LeonardoUgolini #sandsculpture #sandart #LordoftheRings #Sauron #Mordor #BaradDur #TowerofMordor #MountDoom

Artist Sculpts Star Wars' Millennium Falcon Out of SandWatch this mesmerizing time-lapse of Italian sand artist Leonardo Ugolini sculpting a miniature Millennium Falcon out of sand.The video, first posted to TikTok (and then a longer version to YouTube), showed Ugolini carefully use a spatula to build the body of the Millennium Falcon on top of a plywood cut to the contour of the Star Wars starship. Then, he used various tools to add features such as the sensor dish and ship's surface details.Ugolini sprayed a mixture of water and glue using a nebulizer to create a transparent film that cover the spacecraft and keep its shape. This, and the use of the plywood base, allowed the artist to move the sculpture back to his studio.#LeonardoUgolini #sandsculpture #sandart #StarWars #MillenniumFalcon #Chewbacca #timelapseIn his YouTube clip, Ugolini added a cockpit diorama featuring a cutout of Chewbacca:

World's Tallest Sandcastle is a Covid-Themed Sculpture by Wilfred StijgerStanding at 21.16 meter (69.4 ft) Dutch designer Wilfred Stijger's new sandcastle creation smashed the previous record holder to claim the new title of world's tallest sandcastle.Stijger was assisted by 30 of the world's best sand sculptors to create the sandcastle in the annual Sand Sculpture Festival in the seaside town of Blokhus, Denmark. It took nearly 5,000 tonnes of sand, mixed with some clay and an extra layer of glue to make the sculpture last through most of the Danish winter.To commemorate the current COVID-19 pandemic, Stijger put a sculpture of the coronavirus on top of the sandcastle. "It's ruling our lives everywhere," Stijger said, "It tells you what to do ... It tells you to stay away from your family and not go to nice places. Don't do activities, stay home."#sandcastle #SandSculpture #worldrecord #WilfredStijger #Covid19 #coronavirus #pandemicRelated: We Don't Talk About Covid, No No No​
