First of all, let's take a look at these paintings:
Beautiful paintings of various floral patterns, right?
The paintings can only be seen on the beach sand. Not on display anywhere else. It is found, especially, on the sandy beaches of the Indo-Pacific region. Among them are on the beaches of Aceh, Sumatra.
So who is the creator of these enchanting and mysterious works of art?
It is purely a work of nature, without the slightest human intervention.
The painting of the patterns we see above is the final result showing off after the low tide. The more complicated the pattern was, it was a sign of the time interval since the tide was low. In other words, the paintings seen above are the result that can be enjoyed after the tide has refined the works of art that were previously exhibited in such forms:
The sand balls are made in an average size only slightly different from one another, then the balls are arranged according to a certain design around a black hole (I mean by that, because light does not get into it). We can let our imagination run wild by imagining that it resembles galaxies.
The balls of sand are made in almost exactly the same size as each other, then the balls are arranged according to a certain design around a black hole ( (I mean by that, because light does not get into it 😀). We can let our imagination run wild by imagining that it resembles galaxies. It is complicated to think about what had the sandballs arranged in such a way. But for the makers, perhaps, it's that simple. They feed organic particles in the sand grains. They do this by shoveling sand with their tongs, making a hole, then sorting the sand to get the particles they will put into their mouths. Then they ball and arrange the sand so that they do not sort out the same sand.
Here are some of them.
They are sand crabs, small animals that are colored like sand and measuring only a few tens of millimeters. This crab is known by the scientific name Ocypode kuhlii because it is a species of the genus Ocypode, or ghost crab. It runs very nimbly on the sand. Meanwhile, Kuhlii was taken from the name of a German scientist and naturalist, Heinrich Kuhl. He was born in Hanau, Germany, in 1797 and died in Bogor, Indonesia, in 1821.
