The Passion to the Snow Festival



 The snowy sculptures show the figure.
 The details are similar to a genuine article.

 They float in darkness.




 A feeling of the life.
 The animals seem to begin to move.

 The creation enthusiasm seems to inspire snow with the soul.




 The human will.
 The source of every creation.

 The spectators may admire it every year.


 Here is
Sapporo, Hokkaidō.


 The relations of this post. "
Ephemeral construction, snow festival"  01.22.2010 i contributed it.

 Peaceful weekend for you and yours...

  22. Son grandiosas y bellas estas esculturas en hielo y con la luz. Los artistas trabjan muy bien este material tan efímero y aprovecha el juego de luces para destacarlas aún más.

  25. Ruma,
    J'ai suivi ces performances à la télévision, depuis la France et j'avoue que ces artistes forcent l'admiration. La glace est un matériau très fragile et il faut être vraiment entraîné et doué pour réussir de telles pièces. Merci e leur rendre hommage par tes photos;
    Amitiés,

    Roger
