The Sandy Japanese Culture

In my exhibition I have chosen the theme of sculptures, only the sculptures I have chosen are extremely different. I have selected 12 slides to present. I wanted to capture the art of the Asian culture as this Sand museum shows many beautiful religious temples. Hope you enjoy!

The first picture was chosen by myself because I want to capture the lifestyle of Asia. This picture shows a big rice field made of sand. The rice has water flowing above it. Asians redefined rice.
This image shows Shadow plays using marionettes. A form of entertainment and religion. They put a light source behind the puppets to create the images that the audience can see. They were Hindu ethics
