Chainsaws, Ice sculptures, a cathedral,the end of Christmas concert, remembrance of the Lenningrad blockade and it’s only half last Thursday!

At first I wondered what was going on with piles of giant ices cubes in the middle of the city.

On my next visit I realised that the Ice blocks and piles of snow were for a festival of Ice and snow sculptures, so off they went to work with their chisels, , chainsaws, Household irons and unbeliebable skill and artistic vision.

One of the many snow sculptures

A magnifient carriage sculpted from ice and how on Earth I got that woman in the middle of the shot, I will never know!!

MORE SHOTS OF THE FINISHED SCULPTURES WILL BE ON MY BLOG AS SOON AS I HAVE TAKEN THEM!
