Jamie Wardley - Charles Darwin Sculpture

   Following on from Tuesdays post, this is Jamie Wardley working on the Charles Darwin sand sculpture in Centenary Square in August 2009.  The sculpture, made from one hundred and twenty tons of sand stood around fifteen feet tall and was created to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwins birth.


  1. This is marvelous. I have seen elaborate sand sculptures on beaches in Florida, but not trucked-in sand in the middle of a British city. So much work goes into it . . . and then it gets carried away in a rainstorm.

  2. I regret that I didn't go and see this when it was there.

  3. Very impressive work, it's amazing what some people can do with some sand!
