Innocence explained that he had chosen a horse to encourage people to wear face masks, wash their hands and use hand sanitiser, he described the horse as a race to keep healthy.
He revealed that it took him six hours to make the amazing sculpture and people were simply blown away by the amazing artwork.
Here is her full post:
"Yesterday our beaches were finally open again after adjusted level 3 restrictions were lifted ❤️With a deep longing to once again be able to feel the sand between our toes and the water of the Atlantic ocean cooling our feet, we headed out to Muizenberg beach in Cape Town..."
"To our surprise, there was the MOST INCREDIBLE sand sculpture being built by this inspiring young man, named Innocent. I was fascinated by his talent and determination to create something so beautiful from beach sand in the blistering heat. I went to talk to him to find out more about our very own Michelangelo. Below is his story ❤️"
"To me, he was building #SandcastlesOfHope and that is why #ImStaying . What an inspirational artist of Hope in a time when we so desperately need it. Well done Innocent! You are amazing!"
Here are some reactions to the magnificent masterpiece:
Carin Claire Bosman:
"Absolutely fabulous wow !!!! That’s worth the wait !!!"
"That is such a heartbreaking inspiration well done "
"Joy Stylianou Cotsiou I agree with you totally, all the admiration is wonderful but it doesn't put food in his belly so hopefully people part with some of their money."
"Fantastic! UCT how about mentoring and giving him a bursary to be able to create these masterpieces in a medium that doesn't just blow away....... he can also then pay it forward to the many other creative young artists in Cape Town!"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za Julie Wessels took to the Facebook group #InStaying to share her breathtaking portrait of the late Mary Twala who was a legend in South African entertainment.
Julie used Mary as inspiration to pay tribute to her and all South African entertainers. She mentions in her post that she had been watching 'Kings Of Jo'Burg' on Netflix and realised that South Africa had come a long way.
She recognised the impact it has on her and other South Africans at seeing local actors being featured on international series and films.
