This year's sand sculpture at the Nebraska State Fair aims to combine Nebraska History with modern aspects to commemorate the 150th year of the Fair's existence.

Sandtastic, a company based out of Clearwater, Fla., has two men working on the sculpture through Friday, Aug. 30 and hope to complete it in nine days total.

With items such as a cadillac car, a pig's head, a 1900 champion bull and a girl taking a selfie, there are aspects of old and new.

The sculptors typically have a set of headphones in but encourage fair goers to come by and ask questions about the piece and the process.

Built with Nebraska sand, which they say is easy to work with, and being inside, makes the piece that much easier to construct, according to Dean Arscott, one of the sculptors.

The sculpture is located in the Nebraska Building and will be worked on through Friday.
