Almere has this weekend a sculpture festival where various artists make some art pieces from wood, ice, sand and marl. Here a woodcarver in action.
This one is made of marl, a calcium carbonate or lime-rich mudstone which contains variable amounts of clay and silt.
Children could also try to make something with the marl.
A sand sculpture in progress.
And here the ice sculptures. It happened to be the hottest October 18th ever in our country 24 C degrees! (75.2 F), so the ice was melting very quickly.
