Now, there are a whole lot of reasons to love Batman and the Joker. Sure, they're pretty different, seeing as one's a terrifying maniac whose actions cause untold suffering to the city of Gotham, and the other's the Joker, but they've both managed to dig themselves a deep and seemingly un-fillable hole in our hearts.
Now, in comic book, televisual and cinematic form, that's resulted in a whole lot of awesomeness - yet some to the very greatest byproducts of the Caped Crusader and Clown Prince of Crime's respective popularity are the amazing fan-made responses to the characters.
Case in point?
This Sand Sculpture Might Be the Greatest Batman and Joker Themed Anything, Ever...
Wondering just what that giant pile of wondrousness currently sitting on your screen is? Well, that's Marielle Hessels' and David Ducharme's winning entry to the Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition in Parksville, British Columbia.
Which means they literally made it out of sand, a substance most of us struggle to transform into the most basic of castles.
Which...may just be the most impressive piece of fan art I've ever seen - though the Canadian Guardians of the Galaxy from the same event (created by Kevin Crawford and Sue McGrew) come pretty darned close...
I mean, who knew Star-Lord played Hockey?
Nicely played, Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition entrants. Nicely played...
What do you reckon, though?
