Ice Ice Baby...



So, here I am publishing some beautiful statues from around the world, constructed from some of the finest materials that statue builders could wish to construct their statues with. We’ve had statues made from stone, statues made from bronze, statues made from marble, statues made from iron……hang on a minute…...where are the statues made from ice I hear you say?! I do hope you can forgive me for this unforgivable oversight….

Anyway, sticking with the animal theme of recent times, I give you this stunning ice statue of a tiger. Stood By His Ice Tiger is none other than SwissToni, giving it a seriously chilly tiger growl. Grrrrr! I do believe he was growling away deep in the Canadian rockies somewhere. Fine work Mr Swiss, and not the first time you’ve been spotted alongside a ferocious looking animal. Grrrrr!

I understand that it may be a little tricky for you to see an ice statue against a backdrop of, well, snow, so I’ve attempted a little bit of graffiti below to give you an idea of the outline of this ferocious beast :)

nice.

Lake Louise in Alberta, Canda, is the coldest damn place on Earth. I think it was about -3545 when I was there.

Seriously.

It's the perfect habitat for ice tigers, so you really have to be on your guard.

Nice place though - I just suggest you wrap up warm.

SJ - did you do the cgi for the new Star Wars movie?

As a man of much facial hair himself, I'm sure Mr Lucas will be drawn to the groundbreaking effects displayed on this post...
