When Michelangelo spent 3 painstaking years carving David out of solid marble, he knew one thing: that barring any foul play, his work would remain for centuries after.

And so it proved as, over 500 years later, it still stands.

Art that lives on for centuries is one thing, but what would you create if you knew that it would be gone tomorrow?

Tim Hoekstra’s answer to this question is awesome beach drawings.

Inspired by tattoo artists, street art and geometry, the Dutchman uses a rake to make his creations while the tide is out.

After it’s come in and washed the art away, all that’s left is an aerial photo of what used to be.

As Tim pointed out to Bored Panda, his work isn’t unique in being temporary. Even Michelangelo’s David will one day be destroyed.

It’s just that Tim’s work barely lasts 5 hours, let alone 5 centuries.

Thankfully, he does preserve it on his Facebook page and Instagram account.
