HAMPTON, N.H. (CBS) — An artist from Ohio took the top prize Saturday in this year’s Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Competition in Hampton Beach, wrapping up the three-day event.

Carl Jara of Lyndhurst, Ohio, won first prize with the sculpture “Infinity.” The sculpture depicted a man holding multiple faces in his hand. Carl, who also won the “People’s Choice” Award, will receive an invitation to the World Championships.

Second place went to Guy-Olivier Deveau of Quebec, Canada, who crafted the sculpture, “Phasing,” a metamorphosis of a woman turning into a block.

Third place went to Marc Lepire, also from Quebec, Canada. His sculpture, “Protector of the Future,” depicted a baby with four faces in a globe, representing the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water.

Justin Gordon of Groveland, Mass., placed fifth, with the sculpture “Legislated Liberty,” representing a bald eagle chained to a gavel.

This year’s sculptures also included a child’s toy collection, a wizard and a view of the moon. David Andrews of Wisconsin, the current U.S. Snow Sculpting Champion, crafted a sculpture titled “Little Sleepwalker,” which was a young girl surrounded by cherubs. It was one of his first attempts at sculpting in sand for competition.

The sculptors carved over three days using about 10 tons of sand.
