9. You know, normally I don't go for stuff like this, either,

but you're right, this is different, and I so admire the artistic skill here.

11. Well, dammit...

He wrote this long-drawn philosophical reply to you.

About purpose and placement and all that other art-mob bullshit.

But, that's where he comes from.

But there was something about that install. It was precious an un-adorned. The art was not stellar, but the seed was fine

But bourbon and weed dragged his elbow acrosst the mystery key that erases everything. It was all lost, in less than a heartbeat.

So, I typed this...

7. I feel sure they weren't forgotten,

but maybe in keeping with the theme of baby Jesus, he was focusing his attention on the little ones.

14. Stunning. Hard to believe that is not painted. How many hours did that take?

And the candles? How long will it take to melt the angels if they are of ice. I have great difficulty believing they are really made of ice.

15. I feel pretty sure they're made of ice.

We have some exceptional ice carvers up here, and it's been very, very cold. It warmed up enough to snow today, but it's still well below freezing.

Ed. If you go to the Facebook page for KTUU and read the comments under the picture, you'll see that the carver is known to many here locally for his beautiful ice carving work.

19. Lovely and timely. This ephemeral work honors those children.

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
