English: This picture of The Needles, Isle of Wight is composed entirely of natural coloured sands compressed inside a clear glass bottle without the use of any adhesive, and was inspired by the sand jars created by the deaf mute Andrew Clemens, in Mcgregor, Iowa during the 1870s to 90s. He made over 1000 of these delicate sand jars of which about 50 have survived to the present day and are highly prized by collectors!
