Stunning Snow Sculpture...

It was an honour & a pleasure to watch these artists at work...♥

 

"4,500 lb block of snow transformed into impressive sculpture":

 

"January 8, 2011 (Edmonton, Alta.) - Using only hand tools, four sculptors from China are braving the weather to transform an 8 ft. by 4 ft., 4,500 lb block of snow into a work of art at Edmonton International Airport (EIA). The sculptors are part of the Ice on Whyte festival and are visiting from Harbin, Edmonton's sister city in China.

 

The sculpture will represent images from the Beijing Opera and will remain on display outside the terminal at EIA into next week, weather-permitting. As the first snow sculpture of this year's event, this piece launches Edmonton's Ice on Whyte Festival as well as celebrating the 25th anniversary of the twinning of Edmonton and Harbin."
