Copenhagen International Sand Sculpture Festival
Okay, its raining in Copenhagen, so what to do? Well, let’s go and see a collection of 20 very large sand sculptures at the Copenhagen Annual International Sand Sculpture Competition on Ofelia Beach!
We had first noticed Ofelia Beach on the first day that we were in Copenhagen as we were looking for the Opera House and the Little Mermaid on the shores of Copenhagen Bay… however, we didn’t get around to visiting it until right before we left Copenhagen!
This year’s theme is stated on their website as: ““A world in sand – from volcanos to space ships” and many of the sculptures where focused on historical (or mythical) representations from various cultures.
My Favorite of the Sand Sculptures was a collage of all of the Towers in Copenhagen.
Although there were a selection of sand sculptures that tackled the theme “from volcanos to space ships” in an abstract way, with some pretty spectacular results, we really couldn’t figure out the meaning of the rabbit ear sculpture.
Of course, we wouldn’t be in Copenhagen Festival if there wasn’t at least one mermaid…
