Sand - collection

 

After some time of thinking (!?) I started to believe that this is a philosophical collection...!

P1110240

The son of a friend of mine lives in Dubai and he brought a souvenir to his father: it consisted in little frame with eight glass panes containing 7 types of sand from the 7 United Emirates. When moved around the "dunes" inside the frame change their shape.

Today, the 16th of April 2011, the collection consists of 69 types of sand from different parts of the world: what is interesting is that each type has a different colour and granulation!!!

On 14th of november 2011 = 89 samples

On 18th of may 2012 = 94 samples

On 30th of september 2012 = 107 samples
