Have you ever tried to carve into the ice with graving chisel? It is almost the same as carving into soft butter. Do you want to try and convince yourselves? Then this it the opportunity just for you!
For those who are interested in ice sculpturing we have prepared ice carving competition which will take place on Saturday November 8th, 2008. Every participant will have to create any sculpture from the piece of ice, with the shape of a 25 liter pail, within two hours. It can be anything such as portrait, mountain, composition, building, as well as something abstract. “This is not about professionalism since the jury will price a good idea” claimed one of the competition’s organizers and at the same time member of the jury – art sculptor Ján Gejdoš.
Anyone can join this competition – there are no age or experience restrictions. However, be aware that the number of participants is limited, 10 of you has the chance. Register ASAP! (As Soon As Possible).
