Imported from Austria, the Apollo 17 Earth Sand Picture is a piece of wall-mounted (hardware included) art that creates random fantasy landscapes with each turn of the pane. The Apollo 17 Earth Sand Picture is unique because the imagery changes each and every time you turn it over.
Handcrafted in Austria by artist Klaus 'Sandman" Bosch, the Apollo 17 Earth Sand Picture includes natural sands and crushed minerals including quartz. Water permeates between the grains, resulting in the exchange of sand and water from top to bottom. The weight of the sands creates pressure. The sands fall through the weakest links in the air barrier to create mountains, valleys and dunes. With 4 different densities, each mineral has its own weight so these sands won’t mix. Frames are made from solid wood and measure approx. 15.5" x 9.2".
The amount of air in your sand-picture determines how fast or slow the sand escapes through the air barrier. The more air -- the bigger the barrier. This will result in a slower release of the sand. The less air -- the smaller the barrier. This will allow the sand to escape more quickly. As the water gradually evaporates, you will need to regulate your sandpicture to maintain the right balance of air to water.
