的 snow sculpture made out of nearly two tons of snow is the work of snow Sculptor Dave Rothstein. 的 local artist made the sculpture to help light up the night during the darkest day of the year or the winter solstice.
Rothstein said in an Instagram的 post he chose the shape of a hexagon because it is the most common shape found in nature. He hopes the work will inspire others to make the most of the winter season 和 find joy in creating art even in their own yard.
“I’ve been sculpting snow for 20 years but my main passion is introducing the winter arts to other people 和 getting people excited about winter 和 playing in their yards,” said Rothstein.
