They are each depicted playing a different instrument.

The entire installation was crafted from a mixture of imported sand, water, and glue to help protect the figures from collapsing in the wind. Each of the sand-sculpted musicians are unique, and they’re each depicted playing a different instrument in front of a conductor who stands between them and the audience.

The sculpture is located in the center of Barcelona’s main drag and looks out over the sea and offers a peaceful alternative to the hoards of beach-goers strolling along the seafront! If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, be sure to check out the musical intervention before it closes on June 7.
