Snow Eagle

February 27, 2006 at 9:54 pm 13 comments

This snow sculpture is located infront of the Legislative Building. I took the pictures when I went downtown last week. It was a bit cloudy then and there were light flurries. I wasn’t able to get a front shot because it was in the middle of Broadway Avenue and there was no pedestrian crossing on this side of the street. Besides, I wanted to get out of there fast as it was cold and my hands were freezing when I took my gloves off.

    Awesome! They never had things like that in New York City; only street graffiti.

    Yeah, it’s too bad that this work of art will melt away, Sidney.

    Braindead, the third one is the back view.

    Karen, meron din sa The Forks. I’m planning to go there, if and when I find the time.

    Eric, I think it’s because NY doesn’t get as much snow as we do.

    Wonderful snow sculptures. Ang galing naman ng gumawa niyan. Good you were able to document these works of art.

    It looks like a hungry vulture to me. Hehe. Are there any sculpture of a porcupine? That would definitely be an amazing piece of art. LOL!

    Seriously, the Snow Eagle is awesome. It’s not easy to create a figure like that out of snow. I share Sidney’s sentiment: “too bad it will melt away.”

    You know what, Jayred, I’ve seen a TV show about the Ice Hotel in Montreal. They documented it from the day they started building the hotel, to the opening day and up until it melted away. The hotel was magnificent. In the end, you can feel how the creators were heartbroken as watched the hotel melt away.

    Abaniko, now that you said it, I also think that it looks like a vulture.

    He he he. A snow porcupine could be very challenging to do.
