To celebrate the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 54-year-old sculptor Katsuhiko Chaen created an impressive homage to the galaxy far, far away with about 160 tons of sand. Standing 3.4 meters tall, 7.4 meters long and 4.2 meters wide, the sculpture was unveiled on October 8th features R2-D2, C-3PO, and our new little buddy BB-8. In the background, there appears to be various starships from the Star Wars universe.
