Two French carvers sculpted this, titled Dancing Tower, with the Eiffel Tower looking somewhat more loose and limber than you expect of the actual tower.
Japanese carvers sculpted this one, titled Fusion.
I decided to photograph the sculptures in pairs.
I turned during this visit to a view of the Connaught Building and the spires of Parliament Hill off to the west.
Then I photographed more of the sculptures. I will be showing these lit up at night when it comes time to conclude the Winterlude series. Tomorrow we go elsewhere.
...they are all fabulous, b ut the those by the Japanese are special.ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing us the work of these very talented artists.

It was good to have people in the pictures for scale. I also really like them all, but especially the Eiffel Tower. :-)ReplyDelete
Hello, they are beautiful ice sculptures. Wishing you a happy day!ReplyDelete
Beautiful. Were they inside shelters other years?ReplyDelete
Amazing stuff. It almost makes me come to Ottawa to see it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful...and thanks for the environment of the display...brings it into perspective. My fav (in case you wanted to know!) the Japanese piece. So fragile and flowing in it's lines. Where to next??ReplyDelete
they are all wonderful sculptures, but that Eiffel Tower is not only a great piece of work, it's very funny tyoo.ReplyDelete

A dancing Eiffel Tower, how cute and clever is that,I love it!!The others, too, but this one made me want to dance!ReplyDelete
It looks like the Eiffel Tower is dancing to the old "Saturday Night Fever" a la John Travolta.ReplyDelete
William - I scrolled through all of the ice sculpture posts, and the snow sculpture post - wow. Imagination on fire - well, on ice! The talent is superb. It appears there is a common theme among the ice sculptures - origins, or cultural icons. Was that just a coincidence?ReplyDelete
The title says it all!ReplyDelete
Wow! such talent. It's hard to believe they are made from ice, they all look like glass!ReplyDelete
All such talented artists.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
