How would you feel if you created an intricate masterpiece and a few days later it's wiped away? The only people I know who do that are Tibetan Monks practicing the ancient art of Sand Mandalas and professional sand sculptors like Jenny Rossen.
"It is like buying a bunch of flowers; you do it for the beauty of the moment", Jenny says, who just fell in love with this art one day while she was at the beach messing around with sand.
And since there is (supposedly) a lot of very good quality sand in Dubai that's where Australian born Jenny has set up residence. "I want Dubai to become the sand sculpture capital of the world. It has the potential," she underlines. You can read the full article @ Gulf News and visit her website here: Jenny Rossen.
