Synonymous with Rio de Janeiro's golden age Copacabana beach was once an icon of Brazil with luxury hotels at the edge of the ocean frequented by international celebrities. Today the beach welcomes people of all social classes, from poor children, families from the North Zone, rich Rio residents and different styles of tourists. There are plenty of bars, eclectic restaurants, night spots, souvenir's vendors and local artists throughout its entire lenght. Sand sculpture is very popular art display by the artists for tourists. It is a type of investment because they are expecting to received some tips for photos taken in front of the sculptures.

Hello Zbigniew, These sand sculptures are truly amazing, such talented people, very similar to ice sculptures in that they are only temporary, it seems a lot of effort for very little reward. Nice capture that is interesting & of very good quality.

Wonderful sand architecture of this castle! It must have taken hours to do it, but it's perfect! And the picture shows it perfectly, with very good lighting and sharpness! Wonderful job (yours and of the one who built it)!
