Ice Pagoda 1 by sculptin Ice Pagoda 1 by sculptin
This 15 foot tall Ice Pagoda was created during Ice on Whyte 2011 in Edmonton Alberta.I designed it and lead the team to build it. We had 3 local sculptors stack the ice and 5 ice carvers from Harbin, China do the detail work.

That's incredible. I'd never heard of an ice sculpture that large before. (Unless you count things like the Ice Hotel or whatever it is.)

I love it. It looks like it would hurt if that top piece fell... How much do you think it weighs?

17200 pounds total. The top spire weighs 250 lbs. And I kept an eye on it the whole 10 days of the festival to make sure it was safe. It got a little sketchy on the last day when the temperature soared above zero.
