In February 2006 at the Obolonskiy Avenue, close to “Minskaya” Subway Station six snow made figures appeared. It was very difficult to call them as children tricks – without any doubts the professional artist worked here.
“Now we are finishing our work on Three Athletes” said Egor Zigura. “Usually we spend about for days and few tons of snow for each figure. At first we shape big piece of artificial snow and water it. Then it get frozen we put on regular snow and give to it the shape with special spades.”
It turned out, that not one – twelve. The students-enthusiasts of National Academy of Fine Arts asked the General architect of Obolonskiy district to help them in organization of the contest. Later on in front of “Kievgorstroi” building the entire Ice Park appeared. By the way, the snow was artificial in order to keep the shape better; it was prepared purposely by special “Gun” – device which makes snow for skiers.
