I had lunch at Kvadrat today, and I was not alone.....
There were queues everywhere. Kvadrat is a shopping mall with 160 shops and of course several restaurants and cafes. On a rainy day they must do very well as it is enclosed!! It is actually situated just outside the border of Stavanger, but people from all the neighboring councils very often go to this area where a lot of big stores, like Ikea, Plantasjen (a huge gardening center) etc are located. A number of companies also have offices in this area which is expanding rapidly.

Enough about that.

What I want to show you is this sand sculpture which is inside the shopping mall. Amazing and artistic!

I have got some info. from Kvadrat: The sculpture was made by Daneel Foyer, and it took 5 days to make it.
It was made in week 27, and will probably be there until the schools start again in week 34.

How do they do that? It certainly is impressive...especially compared to the sand castles I used to try to build at the beach! I like the guy in back best...what a character!

These sand sculptures are just amazing!
I'd rather see them on a beach too, but at least in a mall, they'll last quite some time.

Wonderful creations! Did you help with our shovel and bucket??

There is no way I could make anything like this, but over the years I have made quite a few other things in sand. Cakes, roads and tunnels are my specialities!;-)
I have seen something similar to this on some of the Canary Islands.
Actually, I once read in a business magazine that a big company had "team-building" in the sand, to figure out how to work together.
