Sapporo Snow Festival
The 59th Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan closed on Monday, but there are at least two online photo galleries of some of the massive artworks created this year (example shown). The title link takes you to the Japan National Tourist Organization website. Look for an inconspicuous link under a photo of the "Stortinget" Norwegian Parliament building created in snow. Spot the basking shark. Sky News (CLICK) has more photos, including a sculpture of the Great Sphinx of Giza, if you can tolerate its slow and ponderous website.
