All Tangled Up

This sculpture is the work of a Canadian pair of carvers, featuring a tangle of figures rising up out of a single base. It was titled Nature Rejoicing.

  1. Fantastic ART, a bit like Vigelandsparken in Oslo ( not ice, but statues by Gustav Vigeland.)

  3. So fun! Let's all go out and try our hand at it. Still partial to the Russian one. (I've changed my settings to moderation and removed Recaptcha. Thank you for alerting us to the problem).

  8. @Linda: I thought so.

    @Cloudia: it certainly impressed me.

    @Gunn: I'd like to see that, but of course I'd like to wander all over the Scandinavian nations.

    @Elaine: thanks!

    @Halcyon: they do.

    @Tomas: thank you.

    @Hilary: I agree!

    @Janis: I figured I'd better let you know one way or another. The captchas as you had them set were very easy, so not being recognized was perplexing.

    @Revrunner: most definitely.

    @Tanya: they would be.

    @Aimee: it does, yes.

    @Sharon: I couldn't do it.

  10. Another two amazing works of art William, sometimes I think it's the sheer transient nature of these sculptures that gives them the extra magic !

  13. If possible, this one looks even more difficult than the others!

  14. @Tex: I like that people see their own interpretations in these things.

    @Norma: I certainly think so.

    @Grace: I have to remember to set a shot or two aside for a theme day later this year- at some point we've got something about short lived things. These are perfect.

    @Jan: the shelters they're in work nicely in preserving them.

    @Judy: they certainly do.

    @Country Gal: thanks!

    @VP: I can imagine it would be difficult.

  15. Amazing talents who create these. It would make a great, albeit fleeting, family tree.

  16. Such talent. Amazing work!

    Also love the photo you have as the header of your blog. Winter can be very beautiful.

  17. They look as if they are in a bit of a struggle!

  18. It does look very joyful and exciting.

  19. That's another gorgeous ice-sculpture. How on earth they don't sneeze and break an arm I'll never know. It looks like such intricate work!

  20. Before I read the title, I thought wow this looks dramatic!

  21. It's quite incredible. And symbolic of how we will rise or fall together...it's better to rise.

  22. @Hilary: that's a different way of looking at this!

    @Jen: thanks.

    @RedPat: that's true.

    @Red: it does, yes.

    @Anna: I thought so!

    @Denise: it certainly does.

    @Ciel: it certainly has a dramatic feel to it.

    @Marleen: thanks!

    @Lowell: thank you.

  23. Tangled? I didn't find it that way at all. A little starry and magical maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  24. These just get better and better not to say more intricate, amazing really. I'd love to see the artist at work.

  25. Very pretty, especially the pink!

  26. These are all so very well done! I assume it's the lighting that gives these the pastel tones.

  27. @Mo: that's what's great about these things- they're quite open to interpretation.

    @Geoff: it is quite enjoyable to watch them working.

    @Lois: thanks!

    @Kay: yes, the lights are much more noticeable at night; I'm hoping to get some evening shots in this weekend.

    @Mari: thank you!
