This is the sculpture that took second place in the Professional Realistic catagory.
A giant ice sunflower with little ice ants crawling all over it.
I quite like this piece, even though the carvers didn't feel it was their absolute best.
But they are coming back next year, so they clearly had a good time doing it.
I have this under the performance arts section because if you've ever watched ice sculpting, the creation of the piece is a performance in and of itself.
