"Don't put your head in the sand!" is advice to be taken literally here. After all, many delicately exquisite sand sculptures await you at Tottori's Sand Museum!
Every year, the exhibition's theme changes, following the general concept of world travel. When we went, the theme was South Asia. Culture fans will enjoy journeying from the Streets of Kathmandu, to the River Ganges, to even meeting Gandhi -- All in sand sculpture form!
For me, learning about the sculpting process was most interesting. The masterpieces are made only using a mix of sand and water. No chemical additives are used. Additionally, despite the scale, each sculpture is sculpted by a single artist, who has to work quickly but carefully. And just like sand in nature, existing sculptures eventually crumble, and the sand is remoulded into new sculptures.
In the shifting sands of time, how about making treasured memories at Tottori's Sand Museum?
