Without the wheels, which were scheduled to be added to this year’s Sandblast sand sculpture on Sunday, the artwork was a bit of a mystery to those on the beach on Saturday.
But artist Joe Lee Davidson and his crew were on the scene to explain: the sculpture is a likeness of an Airstream trailer. Davidson said the idea came from his own Airstream, which he lives in.
He explained that the creation is a "funky town" version of Duvall, with various animals surrounding it and looking out the windows. On the door of "City Hall" is a "Gone Fishing" sign.
"It’s like a ‘city on wheels,’" he said.
Sandblast, an arts, music and sand sculpture festival, is held every summer at the Duvall beach on the Snoqualmie River.
