Are you tired of the regular sand castles you usually see at the beach? World-renowned expert food carver Ray Villafane offers you a whole new different and terrifying option with his own rendition of Dante’s Inferno.
Aware of Villafane’s great talent in carving on the Food Network Challenge show, a professional sand-sculpting company invited him to participate in their annual sand-sculpting event on a beach in Jesolo, Italy. He then decided to create his version of Dante’s Inferno, which he did so magnificently.
To begin his exceptional work, this New York artist set up a wooden structure in order to support and provide a strong hold for the entire sculpture. From top to bottom, he started transforming the sand carefully into a hideous and creepy human-eating demon by the sea.
Check out images of his stupefying work of art.
