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.
These amaze me every time you show them.ReplyDelete
...they look like glass crystal.ReplyDelete
The Symphony Of Sounds is exquisite - how long did it last for?ReplyDelete
The top sculpture seems very intricate.ReplyDelete
Memories of John George Diefenbaker. I can see his trembling jowls now.ReplyDelete
Especially the first sculpture is so delicate ... fascinating how they do that.ReplyDelete
@Linda: me too.ReplyDelete
@Tom: they do!
@Rosemary: they were dismantled after last weekend.
@Joan: that's true.
@David: Dief made an error.
@Jan: that it is.
Hello, I am amazed at how delicate some of the sculptures look. Great collection, they are all beautiful. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day. Wishing you a happy new week ahead.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Wow spectacular. And they only last a short while.ReplyDelete
The first sculpture is also has some beautiful motion along with the symphony.ReplyDelete
Incroyable! Love seeing the ice sculptures William ✨ReplyDelete
Those sculptures are breathtaking!!! The talent, the detail... unbelievable!!ReplyDelete
Friendly reminder: Oscars... tonight!!
What an artwork ! Real beautiful !ReplyDelete
Both of these are impressive but I'm drawn to the symphony.ReplyDelete
Never seen a sculpture of a fighter jet!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Mais um belo conjunto de esculturas de gelo, aproveito para desejar um bom Domingo.ReplyDelete

Hubby'd love especially the two last ones! But they're all so very well done!ReplyDelete
Two very different sculptures today. One rounded, flowing lines. The other sharp and angular. Both well done.ReplyDelete
Beautiful sculptures and they look delicate.ReplyDelete
Delicate sculptures, carved out of a unique material!ReplyDelete
I am always amazed at the fine work they can do with ice.ReplyDelete
Just beautiful and graceful, both of them. Thanks for sharing. :-)ReplyDelete
Both of these today look like fine crystal carvings that should be permanently displayed in an art museum. I’m glad there are photographs!ReplyDelete
