This impressive sculpture is Gilgamesh, done by a Canadian and Iraqi pair of ice carvers, depicting a hero of Mesopotamian legend.
Here we have another of the photograph pairs from previous years, separating each section.
The next work was done by a pair of carvers from Peru. It is titled The Founders: Manco Capac And Mama Ocllo. These are figures in Incan mythology.
For today I finish with this one from Venezuelan sculptors. The Monarch, Champion Of Migration is its title.
In this case, when I came to photograph it, it was not in complete shape. The shelters do a good job keeping the elements from the sculptures, but gravity or an unforeseen flaw in the design might result in a limb or two being lost. Such is the case with the human figures that are part of the design, but it's still pretty.
