We have all heard of ice sculptures, sure, but have you heard of snow sculptures? Well they are breathtaking. More importantly, every year, there is a Snow
Cyleena Pellett's insight:

The Sapporo Snow Festival

The Sapporo Snow Festival is held in Japan. Over 2 million sculptures come to this event, for only a week. The sculptures who participated in the Festival could make an ice, or snow sculptures. There sculptures could be small, medium, or large. Sapporo started to look like a winter wonderland once all the pieces were finished. The artists’ pieces were very detailed. This event happens every year, in February.  This event was held first in 1950. They only got around six high school students, every year to attend this event. Until, they hosted the Winter Olympics in 1972.

13 Coolest Yard Snow Sculptures

Snowmen and other snow sculptures are probably the best part of winter.

13 Coolest Yard Snow Sculptures

This article is about people, or several people creating something out of snow. One of the pictures is a shark that three brothers made. The sculpture is ten feet tall and took them about 95 hours to complete. Making a large sculpture was an annual tradition for this family. Another photo on Scoop.it was of a bed and night stand. It was about the size of a full bed. There was also a love sculpture. This was of a man and women. And the man was proposing to the women, on one of his knees.  There were many more sculptures, but these three were a couple that stood out to me.

World Ice Art Championships

Every year Fairbanks, Alaska hosts the World Ice Art Championships and the year of 2013 was not a disappointment. Sculptures from all around the world come to this event. Over 70 teams were sculpting. The teams took part in several contests in the event. These teams made incredible pieces. But there was a catch, they could only use one block of ice to complete their ice sculpture. They were also able to use an array of LED lights. These teams only had 60 hours to work and do a presentation. 2013 was such a success they already started scheduling for 2014.

Ice Sculpting Video

This video is amazing. It gives incredible artists the chance to show off what they can do to the world. I think it would be awesome to be able to go there and watch people build these kinds of amazing things. This is an ice festival, and there building a frozen “park” in north-east China. The people that do these kinds of ice sculpting are amazing artists, and this is a video to prove it to you!
