Back to Sparks Street. One day during Winterlude I found an ice carver at work with a chainsaw, starting work on a smaller ice sculpture.
One more look at the Louis Riel ice sculpture, which held up quite well throughout Winterlude.
This was one of the interactive installations set up along the street, large wheel structures you could sit inside, pump the handles to get the interior portion of the wheel moving, and images would on the inside and outside, not unlike a film. In this case Alice In Wonderland.
On the second weekend of the festival, pairs carvers from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico carved a series of larger sculptures. A Canadian pair carved Going Gorillas.
This is titled Heilung The Mother Nature, by carvers from Canada and Mexico. More from here tomorrow.
