Controversial san​d sculpture hits the news

Sand is not just controversial in itself but can be used as a means of causing controversy as this week in the UK. A sand sculpture at the Weston sand Sculpture Festival has caused international headlines.

A blue whale surrounded by plastic rubbish drew focus to climate change and pollution, a cause close to sand and sand got OUAW’s full attention. How to care for our planet including sand and places connected to it deserve our full attention. This time another topic made the news.

The Dutch artist Johannes Hogebrink made a Brexit-inspired piece showing UK’s prime minister Theresa May cutting off her own head with a guillotine with Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin watching.

As controversial as the sculpture may be, sand in itself with the rising demand and the sustainable challenge connected to this needs the spotlight too!
