Snowy Nativity Sculpture

December 24, 2015

For the past couple of years I’ve wanted to do a snow sculpture. I played with one, once in the past, and it turned out surprisingly well for a first effort, so from that time forward I’ve thought it would be fun to do a Nativity for the Christmas season. Over the years, things got in the way; not enough snow, not enough time, not enough energy. Whatever the reason, it took me until now to finally get to it, and I’m very happy I did.

Being my second ever snow sculpt, I didn’t exactly have any fancy tools to make it with, so I ended up using nothing more than a rock and a stick to carve out the details.

It was small, and didn’t end up as detailed as I wanted it, but sitting out in the cold, freezing my fingers while humming Christmas carols to myself, was so surprisingly fun, that I think I just might have do it again next year.

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
