Ice Sculpture

Horse Serpent (artist unknown)

Now that the Brit. summer is nearly here, it's time to think of wellies and ice sculpture. This imaginative Horse Serpent was one of the entries in last February's ice/snow sculpture competition at the Quebec Winter Carnival - Carnaval de Quebec - in Quebec City, Canada. This is the world's largest winter carnival, which runs from the end of January for about 17 days into February. Click the title for more photos. My thanks to Jacoblog.

Oh, how cool. Thanks for the shout out Coxsoft...I've yet to visit this large winter festival.

I notice you didn't choose De Gaul. Have you got something against the French?
De Gaul was our friend, he said NON! we should've listened.

Looks well worth a visit, if you're reasonably local. The Andy Goldsworthy graphic - North Pole - is really cool!

Good point!
I just thought the old duffer looked too much like an Easter Island statue, and I prefer the originals.
