My friend James Mantle, better known for his series of artworks which take influence from Ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock prints or woodcuts), did this cool snow sculpture in his driveway. It was about the size of a smart car. It represents a man of the mountain and what lives in the mountain. You can see the front of the face, where the top of the “volcano” is like flames or a coil. The sides have a story line of the three worlds, underworld, middle world and sky world, with the back is carved out to offer birdseed for the little ones!
