These ice statues are amazing! You make all these or just the photos?

Ritva Astikainen on August 18, 2008

Aren't they!! I just took some photos. There were several ice-sculptures gathered together in Nurmes some years ago. It was a competition and this iceTRex was the 2nd. The winner was the dancing ladies. :) Ippa

Hello again Ippa These ice sculptures are fantastic. I had to check out your gallery (Very nice) and I am happy to note that you are from Finland. My family is originally from Finland (Lahti) on my father's side and immigrated to Canada in the '20s. I have yet to make it to visit Finland but it is on my "bucket list" Regards from Canada.

Hi Cal! Thank you! Yes, they are; it was a pleasure to photo them (with frozen fingers ;))

So you have some Finnish roots! Perhaps we'll meet shortly in Finland some day!

Greetings! Ippa :)
