I left off with this sculpture in progress yesterday.
Here we have another in progress. The lighting changed gradually, typical of the lighting when these are finished too. Incidentally, I've already been adding extra takes to upcoming theme day posts for City Daily Photo, as this whole year features theme days based on colour, if you haven't had a chance to look at the list. And the theme day for March happens to be Green, so that's a reminder for my fellow CDP members.
A look at some of the tools on a work table. Yes, that is an iron.
This is the work of two sculptors, one a Canadian and the other an Iraqi.
And this one is done by a pair of Canadians, still at work when I photographed them.
The tool you see here is what they use to pick up individual blocks.
Another sculpture, and it turned out to be a personal favourite in its finished form. When I took this shot, the two Russian carvers were doing some final touches, as you can see with one of them here.
Today I leave off with this. The Ice Hogs are the Winterlude mascots- an oversized groundhog mascot. There are four of them in all, and they are taken from site to site, posing for photos with people throughout the festival.
