Zeus by sculptin

I was invited to participate in the Copenhagen Denmark Sand Sculpture Festival this May. The theme of the event was the History of the World, and I was given Ancient Greece to be artistic with.

I decided to recreate some Greek Mythology. The Titan Cronus had 3 sons who divided the realms of the earth between them. Poseidon took the seas and oceans, Zeus claimed the Sky as his domain, and Hades ruled the underworld. Mount Olympus overlooks from above. 

It took 9 days to complete the whole sculpture. The sculpture stands 14 feet tall.

This side depicts Zeus with his lightning bolts poised in the clouds.
