This Sand Sculpture of an Elephant Playing Chess with a Mouse is Incredible

 

Artists Ray Villafane (featured previously) and Sue Beatrice (featured previously) recently teamed up to create a jaw-dropping sand sculpture of a chess match between an elephant named Chessie Trunkston, and a mouse named Hershel Higginbottom.

The amazing artwork is on display under the Sanderson Lincoln Pavillion in downtown Carefree, Arizona and will be on display until the end of August. Beatrice even wrote an accompanying limerick for the piece and it goes:

“There was a young elephant named Chessie
who ate peanuts but was very messy
when a mouse had him beat
and with no way to cheat
he made one last move and compressed him”

For more incredible artwork check out Ray’s Villafane Studios and Sue’s All Natural Arts.
