Snow Sculpting in the Canadian North

In February and March of 2023 Wing participated in two international snow carving symposia. The first was held in Winnipeg, Manitoba during the Festival du Voyageur, Western Canada’s largest winter festival. The Second was in Yellowknife. For both events Wing teamed up with Mark Thompson of London, England, a stone carver by trade.

Together in five days they carved “Ceci N’est Pas Un Escargot”.
A crowd favorite.

In March Wing travelled again travelled to Canada, this time to Yellowknife, Northwest Territory in Canada’s subArctic. Wing and Thompson were joined by Marin Murakoshi of Japan to create The Wyvern, a mythical creature of medieval England at TheXXVIII Snow Carving Symposium organized by Snow King’s Winter Festival Society.
