Amazing sand sculptures inspired by the Bible

Posted: Updated:

Visitors to an Israeli museum are enjoying a new exhibit of sand sculptures.

Fifteen artists from the World Sand Sculpting Academy worked for two months to create pieces that represent biblical and fairy tale themes.

Robert Moreno said it took him a week to producer "Peter and the Wolf."

Several sculptures are inspired by biblical tales including the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon, Jonah and the whale and David and Goliath.

There's also a piece celebrating three Marvel comic book heroes.

Other sculptures use Alice in Wonderland as themes.
