Is it sad that you (and your friend) can do this and I can't even do one of those upside down buckets without it falling over??

Sand is not my friend.. But it loves you (and your friend).
Good Lordy, does it love you...like wow. 
This is so, soooo good. 
*Looks through the rest of your gallery. Oh yeah, Sand loves you. Wow* :heart:

the part that really blows my mind is how the door is slightly ajar. How does that work?!?

I see sand sculpture like this and my mind can't understand how you make it work!

Well, this sand is pretty amazing with how much shearness it can get when properly compacted. The trick is also to use shadows to make it look like its free-standing when it actually got support.

Fine sand with "square" or "flat" grain (when look under the microscope) with lots of clay content will get you the best results. Usually lake bed, river or quarry sand will have those properties.

Holy bajingos, sand!??!?11one

That is awesome! How long did it take to individually craft everything O_O.
What happens if it rains? Do you put covers and stuff over it?

That is one amazing achievement, I hope you guys win something :)

Keep up the good work and have a nice day!

(Gratz on the DD too! Let the winning begin!)

Jeez that is freaking impressive... You must have to spray the sand with a fixative, there's just no way it maintains that kind of structural integrity. Incredible work. You also must have the patience of a saint.

The sand will stand by itself. We will spray a mixture of water and white glue to it to protect it from the rain, wind, sun, but it's not what it make the sand stand. This sculpture probably weight over 50 tons, so no amount of glue will make it stand if it decide to collapse. Sharp grains and natural clay content will help the sand compact in such a way that you can get such height.
