Looking at & Responding to .... Construction ... Looking at Sand Sculpture . . . A Fine Wine & Cheese Paul Dawkins of Toronto, Canada

This is a wonderful sculpture from the World Championship of Sand Sculpture in British Columbia in Canada.

What event might this couple be celebrating? What feeling does the sculptor Paul Dawkins want to give to us? Why are the couple both seated in the one armchair? Why did Paul make the heads so big?

When could these people have lived - examine the clothes, the holder beside the armchair, the table and food.

Do you see the animal? What do you think it is? Does it want to be part of the occasion?

Tell us what you think of Paul Dawkins' sculpture

Task: Visit Harrisand, The World Championship of Sand Sculpture and select another work with a similiar theme. Compare them and tell us which you like bst and why. Make a drawing of them and send it to us for our Gallery
