The best Russian and foreign craftspeople are cutting beautiful ice sculptures for the joy of residents of Salekhard. Within the International contest “Polar Rhapsody” the professional sculptors from different countries will present their works already in a week.
The venue for the contest is located on the square of the Cultural and Business Center. Several tens of ice blocks are set in 2 meters away from each other. The craftspeople will make their masterpieces of these blocks. One or two sculptors are working on one figurine: one is working with a chainsaw, another – with a chisel and even with sandpaper.
A construction trailer is standing on the square. Here the craftspeople can warm themselves. In addition, a barrel with water will be available every day for working moments.
This year 11 teams from Russia, China, Ukraine and Belarus are participating in the contest.
