Snow Sculptures from the Silver Skate Festival
I better post this before the day is over. As I mentioned in yesterday’s comments, the witch that I took a photo of is Baba Yaga from Russian and Slavic folklore. She lived in a house with chicken legs. Here are some more of the snow sculptures from the silver skate festival – I felt sad for one artist whose sculpture collapsed. The weather was always changing which did not help for the snow to pack .
I made them dark deliberately so you can see the details. These were grouped together and there were others around the park. Except for one I was remiss not to get the artist names or the titles, something to remember in the future. And I erased the ones of the column that were in focus – well that was smart of me.
What are your favourites?
Gosh Jane -these are phenomenal!!! Very hard to believe these are of snow ~ and you did a fabulous job capturing their detail and beauty! Lots of Love to you ~ R

What an amazing talent these artists have! So much variety too, makes you wonder why they make ‘that’ sculpture. Nice photos Jane!

That is a good question about the choice. i liked the column and the sculptor sculpting himself out of the rock (or in this case, snow) takes after Michaelangelo and another master.

What a lovely series of photos! My favorites were the polar bears and the cowboy, but all of them were a lot of fun. Events like this make it worthwhile to go outside and get cold. 🙂

Agree and with this event it wasn’t even cold except for the wind on the last day.

LOL Now why does that not surprise me, Mia!

Next time I will be more thoughtful and record who the artists are.
