Honoured in ICE
Dr. Roly Armitage is a feature at the annual Winterlude celebrations in Ottawa, where visitors can find him atop a horse, carved in ice. The sculptors were two men from Yakutsk, Siberia, who were chosen because of their respected ability to carve animals. The two carvers, Alexei Andreev and Igor Stepanov, have won awards in China, Canada and Russia for their work with stone, ice and bone.
Winterlude celebrations run from Feb. 2 through Feb. 19, just around the corner from the Rideau Centre and across from city hall in downtown Ottawa. From left: Dr. Roly Armitage and Bill Galvin pose with the carving as it’s lit up at night.
