This is actually pretty cool.
A team of some 30 artists recently joined forces to build the world’s biggest-ever sandcastle in the Danish seaside town of Blokhus.
The sculptors used more than 5,000 tons of sand reinforced with clay to construct the intricately-designed pyramid, which stands just under 70 feet tall.
Chief artist Wilfred Stijger of the Netherlands said he wanted the structure, which is topped with a coronavirus wearing a crown, to represent the way that COVID “is ruling our world, and not allowing us to do what we want to do.”
