A 4-meter High Ice Sculpture of St. George

The ice sculpture of the patron saint of the capital – St. George - was opened at the Revolution Square within the frame of the folk arts and crafts festival "Russian winter".


The team of sculptors began to work on the ice figure one week before its opening. Then the monolithic composition was taken apart, and by pieces it was brought to Revolution Square. After that the masters began to compose the 50 parts of ice weighing four tons in a certain order and fix them with the help of special tools. Viktor Chernyshev, the head of the cultural center "Vjugovey" and the Honored Worker of Culture, said: "This statue is not of copper or bronze, but of ice. Here is a kind of a joke, maybe". The sculpture is very popular among the residents of Moscow and the guests of the capital. It was created with pleasure.


If Moscow winter will not make any changes, then the 4-meter-high ice sculpture of St. George will stand in the centre of the city for several months.
