This ice sculpture is one of several installed in Calgary’s Chinatown neighbourhood, part of this year’s extremely muted recognition of the lunar new year.
From the beginning of June, when the figures in the sculpture called Conversation outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in downtown Calgary were fitted with face masks. Seeing how those two can’t really keep a proper physical distance, face coverings seemed to suit their needs.
A rodeo event that’s definitely set in stone! The sculpture called Eight Seconds to Glory by Shane R.L. Sutherland, along 3rd Street S.W. in downtown Calgary, depicts a bull rider hanging onto his animal. (It looks as if he’ll lose his cowboy hat, however.)
