I have two more shots of works in progress today. This shelter is over at the west side of Confederation Park, and these two sculptures have the same subject: mermaids. It's a popular theme with ice carvers; you can expect to see one each year. There's also a strong tendency for ice carvers to give them well endowed breasts, so you know where their minds are wandering. Here the work on both mermaids is well underway, but the tools of the trade are still close at hand. The finished sculptures will be posted here in coming days.
