Moving Sand Art by kinetic sand artist Klaus Bosch (The Sandman)
New to the Collection in 2022. The KB Collection Captain Louis Moving Sand Art is a must-have for the nautical fanatic. Whether it is a love of the ocean, boat trips, or cruises along the shore, it will bring reminiscent memories of calming waves allowing for a relaxing sensation until you can get back to the sea. The porthole polished brass frame is wall mountable and is paired with a black background image to allow for a stark contrast with the Louis Vuitton-inspired sand blend. The sand blend has a rich warm feel, as it was created for a display in Louis Vuitton stores in 2018. Loaded with gold glitter to complement the polished frame. Imagine looking through the nautical porthole to see ever-changing mountains, valleys, and dunes creating before your very eyes.
Captain Louis is 11″ x 1 1/2″ making it ideal for display at home or the office. The Captain Louis Sand Art makes great wall art but can also be displayed on a table using our premium stand available here.
With this versatile ever-changing sand picture, The Captain Louis Moving Sand Art is sure to wow you and inspire serenity for countless hours. If you are giving this as a gift, its one that they will talk about for years to come! Your Captain Louis Sand Art will do several times a day what mother earth takes millions of years to accomplish.
Due to the handcrafted nature of each item, each piece bears its own unique qualities.
How it works:
The KB Collection moving sand art is interactive, ever-changing, mesmerizing and versatile handcrafted art pieces. Turn the sand picture over to watch the battle of the elements: The sand just wants to settle at the bottom, the air just wants to escape to the top, the water hosts the party. The result is the sand trickles between the air bubbles to create fascinating stratifications in the sand mountains.
Mount Captain Louis to the wall using the provided wall mount and screws, then slide the rotating bracket on the back of sand picture into the mount. This allows for the sand picture to be rotated on the wall without removing it. More air creates a slower flow of sand resulting in a delicate trickle of sand making more dramatic peaks and valleys. Less air creates a faster flow of sand making dune shapes. Best of all, these handcrafted art pieces are equipped with an air hole to last for years on end, allowing for you to regulate the amount of air in each sand picture so you can make the sand fall as fast or as slow as you want.
Flow Time: 10 min- 1 Hour

Klaus Bosch (aka Sandman) has been making his KB Collection Sand Art in Lustenau, Austria since 1988. He has a small crew of less than a dozen employees at his sand factory. Sandman's sand art has been in the display windows (worldwide) of Louis Vuitton and Nordstrom's. He has been commissioned to make special gifts for Kings, Sultans, and famous dignitaries. His art can be found in hotels, spas and businesses around the globe. His wild love for nature drives his inspiration and helps capture the beauty and express it in a sandpicture.
From Sandman: "My sand art is spiritual, it contains a lot of questions and indicates answers at the same time. It involves the beauty of what art once was while trying to give answers to our spirit and our inner calm."
