Sandcastle sculptures go on show

Artists working on his sand sculpture of the Taj Mahal

Artists in Germany have been busy with their buckets and spades building giant sandcastles for the annual sand sculpture festival in Berlin.

About 27 artists from 11 countries have each spent a week creating their 4m-high sandy masterpieces to show their idea of paradise.

Between them they've used about 2,000 tonnes of sand.

All the sand sculptures will be judged later in the week and the winner will receive the 2007 'Sandsation' award.
