It must be summer because sand art season is back! Japanese sand sculptor Toshihiko Hosaka transforms those minuscule granules into towering scenes involving awesome creatures and fantastic characters.

“There is no core, mold or adhesive ever used throughout the process: just sand. The only trick Hosaka uses (and this is commonly accepted) is a hardening spray applied to his sculpture only after it’s been completed, in order to prevent wind and sun from eroding it for a few days.”

Hosaka recently competed in the Fulong International Sand Sculpture Art Festival where the theme was “Hero” and he took first prize for his epic sculpture depicting Musashi Miyamoto:
