Finnish Man Makes Art on Frozen Lake a Yearly Tradition

作者:John Russell 发布日期:12-18-2021

For the sixth year in a row, a building designer in Finland has created a very large work of art on a frozen lake.

On Lake Pitkajarvi, north of Helsinki, Pasi Widgren made an image of a fox that measures 90 meters from head to tail. He said he hopes the artwork will "make people happy" and move them to go for a walk in what he called, "beautiful nature."

The 40-year-old Widgren lives near the city of Lahti, about a 90 minute drive northeast of the lake.

He uses a shovel to create the artworks on ice. They melt from sight over time or disappear under snow. Widgren made his first ice picture in the winter of 2016.

The artist recently told The Associated Press that the idea to make such pieces came to him suddenly.

"I realized I may have a special ability of coordination to do this," Widgren said.

He visited Lake Pitkajarvi on December 4. He tested the thickness of the ice as soon as he arrived to make sure it was strong enough to walk and work on. At 10-15 centimeters thick, it was.

After four hours of work, Widgren was done.

He then walked up a hillside about 150 meters above the lake to get a good look at his large artwork. He took some pictures and video to mark the effort.

Several days later the picture was harder to see because it has snowed a little, Widgren said.

But its lack of permanence is not a problem for its creator.

"It's very important to me also that making this kind of art doesn't leave any marks on nature," Widgren said.
