Sand Sculpture ~ a Tribute to Jules Verne by SummerJade

Sand Sculpture ~ a Tribute to Jules Verne by 

Elements from various works by author Jules Verne are depicted here, created in sand. This view is but one face of part of this very large sand sculpture by artist Michel Lepire of Quebec, Canada. One heavy rain and all of this beautiful work will be gone.

This sand sculpture is the cover image for a calendar called Life Is ~ A Day At The Beach (click to view) ♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥~♥

    A gorgeous sand sculpture, brilliantly captured! I loved to read Jules Verne books when I was a child, but from this perspective I recognize only one of them.

  • This photo represents about 12% of the this sculpture. I have photos of each side/face and of the whole thing from different views, but when you back off that much a lot of the detail is lost. I see the Eiffel Tower, a train engine and a diver with a treasure chest as some of the larger items. This sculpture was one of about 25 entered in the competition. It didn’t win, but it was MY favorite. ☺ Thanks so much for your lovely comment!! ☺♥
