Cleveland-based sand sculptor and woodworker Carl Jara (previously) just won fist-place at the Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Competition with this fun sculpture titled Infinity. The piece, which also won the People’s Choice award, depicts a series of five consecutive human figures in the palm of another, each one smaller than the last. As an added bonus, he shot a time-lapse video of the entire piece coming together over a period of three days (warning: dubstep). In the various sand sculpture competitions around the U.S. Jara frequently comes in near or at first place with a imaginative range of figurative works.
