Michael Jackson Sand Sculpture - Blankenberge

I'm not much of an MJ fan... I liked the songs and his talents but I'm far too old to go crazy about his death. In a recent visit at the sand sculptures exhibition not far from the strand in Blankenberge I saw a sculptor at work finishing a sandy MJ. Apparently the sculptor comes from Poland and I must say the work looked great. Click on the picture to get to see some more views and some of the other sand works inspired by the theme of the year, the pirates of the Caribbean?

Michael Jackson died on Thursday 25 June at the age of 50. Two days later, the Indian artist Sudarshan Pattnaik made a sand sculpture of Jackson on Puri Beach in India. Compared to the Polish, Pattnaik seems like a bloody amateur!
