Largest show sculpture in the history of the festival

Jelgava is getting ready for the 13th International Sand Sculpture festival. Sculptors from Latvia - Kārlis Īle, Maija Puncule and Anārs Zigniks together with Vilus Matutis from Lithuania, during last week, have created largest show sculpture in the history of the festival. Sculpture “Guards of Ancient Secrets” follows the theme of this year’s festival “Antique world” and is 6 meters high and 15 meters wide.


The idea of sculpture follows the Egyptian culture, symbolizing undiscovered secrets of the ancient world. In the middle of impressive sand sculpture artists have chosen to put a pyramid, that showcases classical and well-known Egyptian features.


On the 8th and 9th of June Jelgava invites to discover “The Antique World” at the largest sand sculpture park in Baltics.
