Recognize Him?!


St Paul Winter Carnival: Billed as the "oldest and coldest celebration in the nation," this winter event promises ice fishing competitions, a half-marathon, hockey, curling, ice-skating, and a nighttime torch parade. However, the Midwest's largest ice-carving event is the focal point, and the outdoor gallery features an amazing array of frozen sculptures carefully crafted by regional and national artists. Events take place at various locations around the city. Last night a light snow fell in St. Paul that made photography of the ice sculptures less than ideal. The sculptures were roped off so I could not walk up to any of them to brush off the snow. I do think, though, that this one is recognizable. Love the ears!!

  4. Very nice piece of ice sculpture. It is a reminder of those giant ice sculptures in Sapporo, Japan. This year begins in February. I always liked seeing them and I was one who wasn't afraid to go inside those that looked like buildings.
