Michael Jackson World Network Fan Club

Sand Sculpture

The town of Blankenberge in Belgium has for the last eleven years hosted the world’s largest sand sculpture festival. This year’s theme is pirates with thirty-four sculptors representing eight countries.

A last minute addition was a sculpture of Michael and fans can light a tea-light candle for Michael there.

Borescki Wiaczeslaw, a Polish artist, spent four days building the two metre tall statue, copying the cover of the album ‘History’.

Wiaczeslaw said, “…In fact, my artistic career started with Michael Jackson. I once found a picture of him in a newspaper so I took a pencil and I started to draw his portrait. I was sixteen years old and after that, I gave it as a gift to my first girlfriend,”

The exhibition will continue until the end of August and viewing costs 7 Euros.
