Star Wars Turned Into A Giant Sand Sculpture

Star Wars Turned into a Giant Sand Sculpture

One hundred and sixty tons of Japanese sand were needed to make this. That's a lot of sand.

To break that down, sixteen ten ton trucks were needed to haul the sand, and a hundred tons of water were used to create the sculpture, which is located in Tottori Prefecture, Japan. The region is famous for its dunes — hence, the sand sculpture.

According to Famitsu, in total, the whole thing took two months to finish!

Maybe not. That's the Tottori Prefecture mascot not a character from the new movie (bummer!).

Earlier this year, a giant Star Wars snow sculpture went up in Hokkaido.

This Force Awakens sand art will be on display until December when Episode VII hits theatres.
