I love how Google takes the time to "decorate" their logo according to the theme of the festivities being celebrated :-) The heart of the company is one of the main factors that makes it so successful.

On a different note, are those two sculptures made entire of sand?? That's amazing!

Yes, indeed, they're made simply and entirely of sand. I believe that sometimes a sand sculptor will finish with a thin veneer of egg white to stop the sand blowing around, but I don't know if this was the case in Philadelphia or not.

Just put "sand sculpture" into Google images, and you'll find some amazing things!
