On a beach in Belgium an artist adds the final touches to an imposing sand sculpture of the Incredible Hulk and his bristling muscles ahead of the opening of the world’s biggest festival of its kind.

There are more than 150 sand sculptures relating to Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films on the beach in Ostend for the Sand Magic Festival which opened Saturday and runs until September, depending on the artworks surviving the weather, Reuters reported. Recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s biggest sand sculpture festival, 34 international artists have spent four weeks creating the pieces using around 6,000 tons of sand. Sand sculptors from around the world have used their unique artistic skills to craft larger-than-life sculptures for the event.

Some of the sculptures are several meters high. Among the depictions are works featuring Daffy Duck, Yoda, Hulk and Bruce, the grinning great white shark from “Finding Nemo”.
