Written in Sand
story from ISRAEL21c by Marion Lebor and Sally Halon
This summer at the Land of Israel Museum: Tales in the Sand, 15 lifelike sculptures of characters from the biblical Samson to Alice in Wonderland.
Tel Aviv’s Land of Israel Museum took 700 tons of Israel’s most plentiful natural resource – sand – and asked international sand sculptors to create exacting likenesses of super-heroes, storybook figures and Bible greats.
Organized by the Sand Sculpture Academy of Holland, the works are on display throughout the summer. You can catch a sneak preview here.
