Ice Sculpting Championship of Russia

Posted on February 2, 2015 by tim


Strangely enough there is a sports (or arts?) competition named "Ice Sculpting Cup of Russia" to which they invite tens of ice sculptors from all over the world to make the sculptures and participate. This year it was held in Perm city Russia (in Ural region) and there were forty people from over than ten countries - including Argentina, Italy, China, Japan, Thailand etc. If you like such kind of things then welcome inside to see what those masters of ice art have created this winter on one of the main city squares of Perm:

So it was not just ice sculpting but also there was quote "nomination for the best snow sculpture" and here you can see the snow sculptures waiting to be judged.

Usually such things are guarded at night by police from the local youth and just drunk people who like to crush this art for pure fun.

As been said the main topic for the contest was to bring some native motive from their homeland. And this snow creation on top is from a Russian author, with hardly translated name. Also you can see the flags on the background that are probably meant to prove the international importance of the event.
