My snow women - Khadimsquetta
The
Snow woman!


In
January 1982 it had snowed exceptionally a lot! I grabbed the opportunity and
mobilized a few young lads. By means of an avalanche (a snow ball!) coalesced enough snow to
work on it. I started carving a man but at the end it turned out to be a woman!
Not everyone was pleased with it due to his or her religious convictions. It
took me a couple of hours to complete my premier chef-d'oeuvre! Luckily a few
people had photographed my snow woman - as it did not melt but was beheaded in
the evening while I was away, at home, trying to compensate for the lost body
heat due to the hard work of the day!
