Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
It must have been hard to choose the winners, since there were so many remarkable works.
Discern in that set of fine arts must be difficult.Tomás.
I wonder how these sculptures would look if a dark colored lights illuminate them.
A lovely whimsical piece and some very nice detail work!
This suggests to me a bunch of crazy characters dancing round an artistic bubble. An intriguing one.

the tin man from the Wizard of Oz, that's what they remind me of.
Oooh I like this one - they look like they're dancing joyously
There are so many things to look at in these carvings that you have to take some time on them. I guess ice is an easy medium to use so they just let the creative juices rip.
that one looks like it will melt pretty fast when the weather warms up...or are they allowed to stay that long?
Must be the circus they are running off to...........

This ice sculpture is a little bit funny. but still beautiful.
Love the big ball or whatever that's meant to be and all its little details!
Ice sculptures are pretty amazing...the precision and detail work, without cracking the ice...tough to do!!! I can't even get an ice cube out of an ice cube tray without cracking the cube!!!
Comical and creative, I like it. :)
