The judges of the annual Scotch Tape sculpture contest have announced this year's grand prize winner an elaborate scene of a brother and sister fishing. The life-size sculpture was made using 12 rolls of the brand's packaging tape.

Called "The Big One," the sculpture, created by Kent Hathaway of Oklahoma City, Okla., depicts a young boy reeling in a fish while his sister hangs on to the back straps of his overalls to keep him from falling into the water. Scotch judges said the sculpture "stuck out" from dozens of other entries, thanks to its intricate details, such as the boy's rolled jeans and the bows in his sister's pigtails.

I sometimes make a mess with packing tape when I am sending a package, but it never comes out looking like that.

That is really neat! Only thing I manage to do with it is tape my fingers to the package I'm trying to send.
