An Arrow

This ice sculpture was by a pair of Russian carvers. It is titled Symphony Of Sounds: Violin Stradivari, and depicts a woman playing the prized instrument.


Here we have another of those photo sets from previous Winterludes, between shelters.


This sculpture, which I've included the panel with, is Broken Arrow, by Canadian carvers. I'm assuming either brothers or father and son. It depicts the Avro Arrow fighter jet, a Canadian designed military program that was ultimately scrapped.

  9. While I did nit comment on all the previous ice sculpture posts, William, I was amazed at the intricate carvings and the ine titled Imagination and the one in this post of the girl violinist were my favorites. These are simply amazingly beautiful, but alas, short-lived creations.

  16. Never seen a sculpture of a fighter jet!

  17. What a combination...violin which reminds us of beautiful music, and a jet airplane which reminds us of...well, war. But these are talented craftspersons...with only a limited time frame in which to make their creations!
