Spotty sculpture of Obama

What better way to greet delegates to the Democratic Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, this week (4-6 September) than with a sand sculpture of Barack Obama. The striking piece, which shows the President sporting a huge smile, was made by sculptor Larry Hudson who built the work over three days with a team of five assistants. The Huffington Post reports, however, that rain storms left pockmarks in the sculpture, making it look like Obama suffers from acne (thankfully, repair work removed the blemishes). The visitors' bureau for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, provided $30,000 funding for the piece, which is located near to the convention hall.
