This snow carving caught my eye. Maple Snow Globe was done by a team of carvers from Quebec, who depict a snow globe, with several people inside, engaged in the process of collecting maple sap.
This last one is from a team of carvers from British Columbia, called Powder Hunter. It shows a snowmobile rider out in the western landscape. This one seemed to get particularly covered with more snow than the carvers themselves expected.
This wide view showed the sculptures together.
This looked like a very large snow sculpture at a distance, but coming closer, it revealed itself. What looks like snow is actually canvas covering something that will be on display in the summer, part of a project referred to as MosaiCanada, something for the anniversary year. The concept has been held regularly in Montreal, as I understand.
This view within the park looks towards the Ottawa River and the Alexandra Bridge, with Parliament Hill across the river.
