Sandcastle for a Cause at High Street Phoenix

Building sandcastles is something we do when we go to the beach. However, this one is nothing like the ones we make. Its actually a sand sculpture, with turrets towering over the structure, intricate details such as doors and windows etched into the sand. We saw it for the first time at the High Street Phoenix in Lower Parel, Mumbai, last year, when Simon Smith, in association with Sand Cult, built this beautiful sculpture on the occasion of World Cancer Day. Click here to read about it. The event is back this year, and so is the sculpture, at the same venue...




The castle is similar, but not just the same.




This auto, for instance, sinking in quick sand, is new...





and so is this dog....



As Samhith pointed out, the boards have something interesting too.. such as the wood texture given to this one...



and the tiny fold on this one...



Of course, a visit to High Street Phoenix can never be complete without a visit to Hamleys, so, here is one last glimpse from the store.


P.S. Please excuse the quality of the photographs. I inexplicably left my camera at home, and had to settle with my mobile!

Information
