Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Home Team wINS!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral <3
Fantastic ART, a bit like Vigelandsparken in Oslo ( not ice, but statues by Gustav Vigeland.)
They certainly look joyful!
Perfectly good collection of figures made by artists.Tomás.
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).JanisGDP
There appears to be a "hand" thing going on here. :-)
i would think the hands would be very difficult!
Very cool, looks like some kind of people tree
These are all just amazing. I cain't imagine carving such works of art.
@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.
almost looks apocalyptic!
The ice sculptures are all beautiful!
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 !
Beautiful, but I hope the fingers don't melt away too soon.
Those carvers have amazing talent.
If possible, this one looks even more difficult than the others!
@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.
Amazing talents who create these. It would make a great, albeit fleeting, family tree.
Such talent. Amazing work!Also love the photo you have as the header of your blog. Winter can be very beautiful.
They look as if they are in a bit of a struggle!
It does look very joyful and exciting.
another amazing piece of work !
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!
Before I read the title, I thought wow this looks dramatic!
Another beautiful one!
It's quite incredible. And symbolic of how we will rise or fall together...it's better to rise.
@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.
Tangled? I didn't find it that way at all. A little starry and magical maybe.
These just get better and better not to say more intricate, amazing really. I'd love to see the artist at work.
Very pretty, especially the pink!
These are all so very well done! I assume it's the lighting that gives these the pastel tones.
@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!
That's a good one.
Wow, look at the detail! Incredible. Love your header photo.
reminds me of an interpretation of Aphrodite rising from the sea foam. So beautiful
I thought it was a bunch of basketball players at first! Lovely!
The alternate name is "Orgy."
It looks wonderful!
@Randy: definitely.@Whisk: it is!@Linda: thanks!@Gemma: true!@Cheryl: I can see that.@Jack: hah!@Jennifer: it does!
