I was glad to get into Confederation Park last Friday to take these shots. I was there on both weekend days, and it was much busier. These smaller sculptures have a variety of styles, but the precision of the carver's work always impresses me. Here around the fountain they're out in the open.
It's off topic, but this is in an office building near Confederation Park. The Winter Olympics start up tomorrow (with some events today) in Sochi, all so Darth Vladimir... I mean, Tsar Putin... Oh, right... so President Putin can have his own ego stroked. Anyway, this is set up in the lobby area, cheering on our athletes.
For the next post, I'll start showing you some of the tools ice carvers use when working on the larger sculptures. I caught some of them at work early on in the process on Friday, and they had the weekend to finish their work. The end result is spectacular.
