You’ve probably made a few sand castles at the beach in your time, but Andoni Bastarrika has taken it to the next level. He’s made sand his preferred medium, and has become a hit on the beaches of Basque Country, Spain. He works with his hands to create large-scale human features and animals in nothing but sand. They’re so detailed, it’s hard to believe they’re not real.

From sharks and dogs to human feet and giant faces, Bastarrika creates realistic sand art that’s making waves!
