Amazing Art of Snow Sculpture
Last week, we had a roundup of snow photography and have mentioned that winter is not a season to be underestimated. There are people who are eager and can hardly wait for the first snowstorm to hit. As you will see in today's post, there is a lot one can do with snow — welcome to the art of snow sculpture!

Really “COOL” art :)
There is some serious talent in these sculptures!
One of them is not made of snow though. The one called “Serious Snow” is an actual sculpture in Montreal called “La Foule illuminée”.
this is absolutely awesome!! And in Sunalini’s words yes very cool art :D
Those are amazing. The details are particularly impressive.
Thank you for including my photo of the Davy Jones sculpture at the Tokamachi Yuki Matsuri (Snow festival) in Japan. It was impressive and the whole atmosphere was a lot of fun. However, it is a shame I never got up to Sapporo or across to China – those are some really amazing sculptures!
amazing collection of snow sculpture. thanks for sharing this with us.
These snow sculptures are all magnificent. Beautiful art made of out nature.
amazing stunning- and, just as every medium has its own distinct & special properties, there are those which are unique to snow/ice that make for beautifully whimsical sculptures- they glisten & sparkle in the sun- with the rays playing with & bouncing off of their form – then in the shade of evening or night they still glisten, but with a magical veil of opalescent sheen.
The blank stark white-ness creates such an interesting dynamic- it’s awesome — Presented to us in this way- blanketed under a coating of bare white nothingness; devoid of the distraction of even a single color- there is that sense of sparkling, gleaming purity already mentioned- but each sculpture, regardless of subject- be it Mickey or Buddha- also seems to possess this, almost deep, heavy, esoteric quality- but I also can’t help but feel a sort of sadness too- like they are frozen- literally and figuratively(!) haha- paused in this blank, empty moment- it’s hard to pinpoint- whimsical, yet mysterious, yet…sad haha. Lovely no less. Loved this feature ^ ^*
AAG (awesome, amazing, great)
Thank you! Really amazing! I’ve shared it in Facebook!

Wow, there are amazing sculptures inside.
Thanks for sharing…really fantastic and sometimes unbelieveable big!!
wow, its very great and very enjoyable. amazing .
People love to talk but hate to listen. Listening is not merely not talking, though even that is beyond most of our powers; it means taking a vigorous, human interest in what is being told us. You can listen like a blank wall or like a splendid auditorium where every sound comes back fuller and richer.
Wow,how did they do that?It’s amazing.
Great work and thanks for sharing.
I wonder what they mix in snow to keep these structures standing in sun.
This is very nice.But I found a lot of great sculptures at venieri.com/ and I think that they are very very great.
This is simply amazing stuff…
Hi, I read your blogs on a regular basis. Your humoristic style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!
