The magnificent sand sculptures Of Toshihiko Hosaka (pic2), who’s been refining his granular oeuvre for two decades. Aside from a hardening spray applied to protect the finished sculptures from erosion by the wind and sun, the only material he uses is sand.
Earlier this month, Hosaka’s three-days-in-the-making tribute to 16th century Japanese swordsman Musashi Miyamoto (top pic above) won first prize at the Furlong International Sand Sculpture Art Festival in Taiwan.
Last night. Burgh Quay, Dublin 2.
