Intricate Sand Sculpture Scenes by Susanne Ruseler

susanne ruesler 1 Intricate Sand Sculpture Scenes by Susanne Ruseler

While studying Biology in college, Susanne Ruseler discovered that her true passion was not in studying living organisms but in creating sculptures from materials such as snow, ice, and sand. After graduating, she started her own sculpture company and has been making fantastic, albeit temporary, art ever since. Her work now takes her all over the world, to places like St. Petersburg and Madrid to Tel Aviv and South Korea, where she makes intricate sand sculpture scenes at private events, festivals and competitions.

The Utrecht, Netherlands-based artist doesn’t hold back when creating her works. Her sculptures are incredibly intricate, often involving the combination of many figures to create one comprehensive scene.

Battle Of Helm’s Deep Made from Lego

1260 Battle Of Helms Deep Made from Lego

Based on the layout of Helm’s Deep featured in Peter Jackson’s film adaptation, this 150,000 brick set piece is astounding. The artists, who go by the names Rich-K and Big J, apparently, nail the atmosphere and scale of the conflict of one Lord of the Rings most iconic scenes. At the time these photos were taken, the model was about 90% complete, with an estimated four months worth of work. The time, money and personal investment that must have gone into this project is impressive.

Man Makes Letterbox Shaped Like .44 Magnum Revolver

Roger Buchko of Lopatcong Township, New Jersey, came up with the idea after seeing similar designs online. The semi-retired cabinet-maker spent a few hours every day for four months putting the mailbox together. While he is a gun rights supporter, he said that the bespoke letterbox is not a political statement and was more of an attempt to showcase his craftsmanship.

Tallest Domino Tower World Record Broken by Bristol-based Engineer

Bristol-based graduate Tom Holmes set a new Guinness World Record after creating the structure that reached 5.275m at its peak. It took the record breaker 7.5 hours of gruelling concentration and 2,688 dominos to complete the towering task.
