Infinity, Clever Recursive Sand Sculpture by Carl Jara

In the sand sculpture “Infinity,” a figure holds a miniature version of himself in his hand, and that figure holds an even smaller version, and so on, in a sculptural example of the Droste effect. The sculpture was created by artist Carl Jara for the Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Competition in New Hampshire, where the work earned a gold medal and the people’s choice award. For more photos from the event, check out Jara’s Flickr set. Jara has also released a timelapse showing how he made the sculpture.
