Just look at that magnificent sand sculpture of Dante's Inferno by Ray Villafane and weep:
After seeing him compete on the Food Network Challenge Show, Ray was contacted by a professional sand sculpting company and invited to Jesolo, Italy to take part in their yearly sand sculpting project for the holidays. Though Ray had never sculpted in sand, he took the opportunity that was offered. In November 2008, Ray traveled to Jesolo and created his first sand sculptures. He did so exceptional, that he was invited back the following summer where he participated in bringing "Dante's Inferno" to the beach and was given the most pivotal sculpture of the show.
