2023 Winter Arts Snow Sculpting Festival | Dubuque, IA
1st Place State Championship Title
"Symphonious Swan" is inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns’ “The Carnival of the Animals,” specifically
“Le Cygne” or “The Swan.” It depicts the graceful swan in a moment of tranquility as the cello slowly and melodically performs Camille’s composition. The sculpture is intended to be emotive and somewhat somberly in it’s appearance. This ephemeral creation symbolizes the power of art in its ability to entrance us and create joy, even in the little moments.
