Santa in the Sand – World’s Largest Sand Sculpture Santa Claus

I love walking the beach in the wintertime, though I would be surprised to come across a 100 foot long Santa Claus. In 2008, sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik and his team created a sand sculpture of Santa Claus at Puri beach on India’s East Coast, measuring 100 feet long, 30 feet wide and 15 feet high. The sculpture used 1,000 tones of sand and holds the title as the Tallest sand sculpture of Santa Claus.

The next year Sudarshan Patnaik sculpted 100 Santa Claus figures on the beach at Puri to spread awareness about global warming.

    i beleive icould build a fifty meter hi sand pyamid using my d6 swampdozer 2.8 lb per square inch on the ground with 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 slopes if the sand didnt crumble that is i have been operating bulldozers for 40 yrs and it would be a great challenge carving out the point of the pyamid looking down 50 meters but nothing for me as i am hanging of 80 meter cliffs all day with vertical faces i have the material to build it but havent the funds to make it happen it would certainly be a great tourist attraction one day maybe …. by the way i loved your santa very clever i need to know what you put in the sand to keep it so stable the formula would have to be spot on i imagine
