The More You Look The More You See…

Himself was stumped about which three Dutch sayings these of the 2016 Garderen Sand Sculpture festival represent, I was more blown away by the level of detail achieved by the sand artists. The first set have views from so many angles that I couldn’t count, you see back side of leaves, flowers, side cut-a-ways, views from below, the list goes on. In the second set, the arches of the Coliseum make me wonder how much these people push the boundaries of what can be cut away before something collapses. The third set shows not just the many angles possible but also the many textures, the water bubbles in the stream, there is a thatched roof, mounds of dirt by the digger,  the more you look the more you see.

    • Carrie,
      I thought they were sunflowers too but Himself says that because of the saying referring to weeds being so hard to get rid of, that these are probably scary looking weeds lol!
