Sand carpet

In December last year, 25 Iranian artists created the world's largest sand carpet on the island of Hormuz, and we wish we'd seen it. Like some kind of giant sand mandala, the carpet measured 12,000 square meters and was created from 70 different colors of sand found on the Persian Gulf island.

The 'Persian Gulf' sand carpet was displayed on the island from December 9 to 17, but it's unclear what happened to it afterwards. If anyone has a chance to go to Hormuz and check, let us know if it's still there. RM
