A 60-year-old farmer showed off his incredible sand calligraphy skills in eastern China.

The impressive video, shot in Heze city in Shandong province on July 3, shows the man writing some Chinese characters with the sand held in his hand on.

According to the filmer, the man was interested in calligraphy when he was a child and used to practise it often.

He occasionally found out that sand can be used to write characters as well and gradually developed his sand calligraphy skills.
