Sand Skull

Andy Hamm and made this skull with the help of his wife, Carol Ann Livingstone, on Martha's Vineyard, South Beach.

I was recently at the beach, so I still have sand on the brain...and in my car. I've always enjoyed seeing wonderful sand sculptures like this one. It takes a lot of creativity, time and patience to make such a wonderful piece. Of course it's lots of fun too taking something as common as sand and molding it into a sculptural form. This particular piece reminds me of the two sand sculptures ( Sand Skull 1 and Sand Skull 2 ) that the skull master, Noah, made during his 365 project. Odd thing about this photo, If you rotate it 180 degrees, the skull appears inverted. It's an optical illusion that I suggest you try.
