Creativity

This ice sculpture set marks an upcoming international book fair in Europe, with an ice bench for posing.


Ice benches are found elsewhere on the street.


Here we have another look at some of the smaller sculptures.


While this is a wider view of the street.


This wall was an interactive one, with children applying coloured cubes of ice to the surface of the wall during the first weekend.


The Louis Riel sculpture kept drawing my attention during visits.


As did this one.

  3. Great sculptures, William!
    The eagle head and the bench with wings are my favorites!
    Sorry that in the last days I have not left a comment, but I am sick!

  4. The colours, when they apply, are very attractive, and the street scene too.

  9. I am amazed that you had no other people in your shots...you must have been up late, or up before the sun to accomplish that! I like the winged one also!

  12. Nice they had something special for kids. Kids will remember their experience and maybe one of them will become an ice carver.

  15. The ice benches would require very warm clothing on the derrière.

  17. These are all fun! I could feel my warm rear end in those benches and wondered how long it would take for me to make a dent in one. :-)

  19. No desire to sit on an ice bench, but I would happily stop and watch children put colored ice on the wall.

  20. I've been really enjoying heated car seats the last couple of years. Which makes those benches look pretty unappealing despite their beautiful colors.
