Hua Hin artist Wins Sand Sculpture Competition in Japan

Thai artists have won first and the second prizes in the 6th annual sand sculpture competition and exhibition held on Ishikari beach in Hokkaido, Japan last month. It was the first time that organisers of the Ishikari sand sculpture and exhibition invited Thai artists to enter the competition. Thailand sent two teams to participate. The first team was from Hua Hin Municipality and the second team from the Faculty of Management Science at Silpakorn University. Hua Hin won the first prize for its “Friend” sculpture which features a Thai child with top knot hair style hugging a buffalo, reflecting that Thailand is a rice-growing country. The second prize went to the Silpakorn University for its “I am a Tiger” sculpture featuring a cat looking at a mirror and seeing itself as a tiger. The artists of this sculpture wanted to communicate to the viewers that self confidence can lead to developing one’s potential. A total of 22 teams entered the competition. The third prize went to a local Hokkaido team of artists. thaipbs.or.th
