Made from fine river sand the outdoor record in California is 2 years. If a sculpture is built indoors, then it can remain intact for decades. The sand only needs to be moist while you are working on the sculpture, when complete it can dry out completely because the sand is compacted it does not fall apart. Rainwater is absorbed by the sand and evaporates when it has stopped raining.
They are a bit better than the "sand castles" I used to make back in the day lol.

Martin Tulinius created this small piece of paradise on earth back in August 2007 for the fifth annual Sandsation event in Berlin, Germany. And around 100,000 Germans filed through to enjoy some of the best sand sculptures in the world.
Skoda was bought over by Volkswagen in 1991 and like a Czech Phoenix has been transformed into a reliable and respectable brand with sales figures to match. This sand sculpture was built to launch the mark in Australia.
