‘The Simpsons’ Appear on Sao Paulo Beach

Sand Sculpture of 'The Simpsons'

RIO DE JANEIRO — One of the most popular TV series in world history, ‘The Simpsons,’ won a nod on Boqueirao Beach in Santos, on the Sao Paulo coast this week. Artist Carlos Primo, 31, created a sand sculpture portraying Homer Simpson and his family, including the dog ‘Santa’s Little Helper’ and cat ‘Snowball II.’

Carlos began the sculpture last Monday and finished it Wednesday. “I started carving Monday, around noon. For a sculpture like this, it usually takes me about a day and a half to finish. Then the rains came, and I fumbled a bit and then had to wait,” the master sculptor told G1 in Santos.

The renowned sculptor, who has won many prizes for his work, uses only toothpicks, ice cream sticks, sand and water to create his masterpieces. “Using toothpicks, sand water and a little creativity,” says Carlos.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
