Every year, the beaches that line the resort town of Søndervig, Denmark are transformed into a sandy spectacle for the highly-anticipated Søndervig Sand Sculpture Festival. For this year's edition, artists have been asked to sculpt colossal works of art that exhibit a particularly fitting theme: “life under the sea.” Spanning aquatic wildlife, underwater civilizations, fantastical figures, and even some particularly popular cartoon characters, the subject matter explored by this year's participants is simultaneously diverse and cohesive.
