The status of the record sand sculptures were needed 150 tons of natural quicksand.The resulting sculpted details of the entire works of sculptors took just five days of hard work. "It was the hardest and most elaborate statue in our history, because it consists of several meters of vertical walls, which are made only of loose sand without any internal reinforcement or other support, and that was probably the most difficult on this statue, even more difficult than the actual construction giant heights statues," said Ing. Martina Homolová of the implementation team, which also added: "The city of Brno can boast a record sand sculptures, exceptional artistic landmark which is an absolute rarity for the whole of Central Europe."
