World's Largest Sand Sculpture - 1001 Arabian Nights in Kuwait

Thanks to Aziz for letting me know about this. As part of the P2BK (Proud to be Kuwaiti) event at the Remal International Festival they have built the world's largest sand sculpture display based on stories from The 1001 Nights.

They open today, after some delays. There was a rare rain storm during construction that moved things back a bit.

The company overseeing the project is The Sand Sculpture Company, like them on facebook for access to hundreds of pictures, some of which I've posted here - https://www.facebook.com/sandsculpturecompany
