Foreign Friday

Snow sculpture
Sapporo Snow Festival
Sapporo, Japan
February 1980
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a close-up of this sculpture. Today, I want to give you some idea just how large the sculpture really was. Note the snow structure to the left of the sculpture. That was over 10 foot high.


Sitting next to the towering figure was this large sculpture of a sitting gentleman.

  1. Wow! That really takes the idea of snowmen to another level, doesn't it?

  2. Questions? How cold was it? Is the snow trucked in or man-made? How long to these last? It looks like these are outside so I would guess it had to be winter?

  6. Such detail! Amazing what they can do with snow. I'm guessing they wet them to ice them over?
