Sand Sculpture Creations At Ocean City Maryland

Updated on February 2, 2012

If you've ever gone to Ocean City, Maryland, you may have noticed the sand sculpture that is created new each and every day. The sand is always sculpted into something of the Biblical sense and Jesus is in a lot of the sculptures. Check out the different pieces that Randy Hofman has created.

Each day, a new sand creation is made because the night before, the tide washes it away. It takes a lot of patience to know that you're work of art is just going to be washed away after all the time you put into it! Thousands of people walk by and see the sculpture on a daily basis. It is located on 2nd street on the boardwalk. I know that everytime I am there, I make a point to go see what the latest creation is. It's really cool to know that someone takes the time everyday to get God's message out to everyone, knowing that nature will take it away. Take a look at some of the sculptures that were created.

      Thanks for sharing, until you mentioned this in a Hub I had forgotten about these and I live in Maryland!

      You even know his name and that means you have most likely met him or taken the time to find out who he is, good for you. I like that idea of the concert hopefully I will see something listed on i-concerts.

      Thanks again. ?
