Carved

Here we have a close up of the ice sculpture I left off with yesterday.


And a different angle for it.


And here we have that sculpture that held up quite well under the circumstances.


This one, however, had lost forearms before I'd photographed it this day. I went for closer details instead.


And this last one, which appeared to have lost some of its structure, but still looked interesting.


One last view, looking east. Tomorrow we'll take a look at them lit up at night.

  1. ...William, these sculptures are beautiful, it would be wonderful if they could last. Ottawa's tulips will soon take the stage.

  3. I wonder if anyone's ever made a time-lapse film of the statues disintegrating, it might be interesting. And then you could play it backwards! I'm amazed at what fine detail these sculptors achieve.

  7. So skilled how they can make those finely shaped sculptures. It is a pity that it will all turn into liquid form again.
