The sands of time: Highlighting Palestine's history

It took two days to complete a sand sculpture which marked every major development in Palestinian history.

It took Osama Sbeata and his team two days to complete a sand sculpture which marked every major development in Palestinian history.

Along the beach, and 75 metres long and four metres wide, sand was brought together to spell out "1948, Nakbha", "1967, Naksa" only to go to mark the First and Second Intifadas and other years which are imprinted on the Palestinian psyche including Israel's most recent devastating wars on the Gaza Strip in 2014.

The creation is thought to be the longest such work in the Arab world.
