Whether Christian or not, many netizens marveled at the skill and creativity of those who made the beach art.
One beach art shows a huge face of Jesus Christ with a crown of thorns and His eyes closed.
Another artwork shows the Messiah with arms outstretched and a halo on His head, perhaps to depict His resurrection from the dead.

Beach art or sand drawing is a form of art that involves drawing in the sand. This art form has a long history, with some researchers saying its origins can be traced to Vanuatu, a South Pacific Ocean country made of approximately 80 islands stretching about 1,300 kilometers. Famous artists like Pablo Picasso were also known for drafting their visual concepts in the sand. In some cases, color is added to generate colorful environments on a large or small scale. The inventor of the barcode, Norman Joseph Woodland, is said to have come up with his invention by drawing it in the sand.
There are many talented and skilled Pinoy artists, though many of them remain undiscovered. Such was the case of Jhalanie Mutuan, who used to be digging for food before she found art materials that allowed her to earn enough money to buy her own meals. A netizen shared her story on Facebook and has been an instant hit, even reaching Coco Torre who offered Mutuan to exhibit her works. The idea was successful as all of her 40 pieces were sold within a few hours.
Even famous celebrities have hidden talents that only become known if they do post their artworks. Nikki Gil, for instance, wowed a lot of her followers after she showcased her talent in painting. This was after she posted on Instagram a photo of her with her watercolor painting. The prominent singer’s post immediately garnered positive comments from netizens.
