I have posted some pretty incredible sand sculptures in the past like the amazing 8-bit NES sand sculpture and Minas Tirith sand sculpture and while those are both incredible, this new Star Wars sand sculpture blows them both right off of the beach. Without a doubt, these are the droids you are looking for!
54-Year-old sculptor Katsuhiko Chaen sculpted this incredible Star Wars sand sculpture to celebrate the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. The sculpture stands 3.4 meters tall, 7.4 meters long and 4.2 meters wide and uses 160 tons of sand! Wow, thats a lot of sand!
The best part is if you happen to be in Japan, you can check this Star Wars: The Force Awakens sand sculpture out in the coastal town of Tottori between now and December! Or if you have a lot of frequent flier miles built up, going to see this Star Wars sand sculpture might just be something worth using them on!
I love seeing giant sand sculptures and if I was in that part of the world, I would definitely swing by and check it out. It never ceases to amaze me what somebody can do with beach sand. However, I always wonder, how much sand does the artist get in their shoes when they make something like this?
If you know of any other geeky sand sculptures like this Star Wars sand sculpture that you think we should post about, make sure to let us know in the comments below! I love when readers send in stuff because then it means I don’t have to go looking for things to post.
