At the 3rd New Zealand Sandcastle competition there were some spectacular sandcastle sculptures to be seen. The amount of skill and craftsmanship that went into sculpting these is beyond belief.
Thanks to reddit user ‘mamba_79’, who was present at the event, we can share these incredible photos with you.
That’s one awesome looking sand tortoise.
“Big Papa” the mighty Walrus.
Looks a bit like that dude from the Big Lebowski.
Not sure what this is, but it looks amazing.
Hmm… I wonder what’s behind…
Woah, it’s an evil looking lair.
A soldier in the trenches, an octopus, and a mermaid in the back. Interesting.
A closer look at the trenches.
Not all the sculptures made it out alive. This one crumbled down the sides, although we think it actually looks cooler this way.
And now for the one you’ve been waiting for. What we love about this one is how there is a unique and intricate sculpture on either side.
Here’s the front…
And the back!
