Snow Sculpting

My maker team (The notorious OMG) and I got together over the first week of Winterlude to carve a gigantic 10 foot tall Godzilla out of a cube of snow!

The cube started like this:

Our original plan included a cityscape, but when we saw how high the peak of the snow cube went, we knew we had an opportunity to do a familiar landmark – Parliament Hill.

Our first couple of nights were tricky because of the warm melty weather, so we only had a few days with all hands on deck to carve it in to shape.

Saturday morning, the final OMGodzilla could be spotted mingling with the crowd of admirers who came out to see what we’d been working on. Super proud of this project – I think it turned out pretty well, and I learned a lot about co-ordinating artistic projects among a team.
