Sisters Symbolic Sand Art


Three sisters from Indiana intentionally came together to create unique sandscapes using colored sand from ACTÍVA.

After suffering much loss the sisters decided to create a meaningful memory. Each sister selected a uniquely shaped vase, but used the same colors of sand to create personal sand art. Each vase will be placed conspicuously in their homes as a reminder of each other and how blessed they are. Eventually all three vases will sit side-by-side as a representation of each sister.
