London Ice-Sculpting Festival

8 Comments

Friends and I went yesterday to check out the London Ice-Sculpting Festival in Canary Wharf. The weather was finally cold enough so that the artists didn’t have to worry too much about the ice melting while they were chiseling away. Actually it was REALLY cold, swear-word size cold. But since this post will already show boobs, I can’t also use swear-words… LOL.

This was my favorite sculpture (or maybe just the one I took the best photo of):

As we walked through the ice-sculpture garden, I noticed how many naked ladies had been sculptured and commented on this… A guy next to me pointed out that most sculpturers are male. Go figure…

This sculpture I liked for how it captured the light:

It was really fun walking around and seeing the different types of ice-sculptures. Only some were dripping away… Since it has been pretty cold overnight, hopefully they all survived the night. There are ice-sculpting classes available. So if you have nothing to do on this beautiful cold London day today, go and check it out. The festival will run until late tonight. An international  food festival is also part of this event.

Here are some more pictures. Enjoy!
