Each year, the Bartz brothers in Minnesota create a fanciful snow sculpture. This year, they may have outdone themselves.
A massive whale made out of snow is on display in the Bartz family’s front yard.
The Bartz brothers take their snow sculptures seriously. They have equipment to help them shape the snow and even climbing gear to help them manage construction of the massive project.
The Bartz brothers hope to invite the public out to see the finished sculpture for a grand opening event Dec. 31. The snow sculpture is not just an artistic achievement, it also serves as a fundraiser. “This year we are doing it to raise money for clean water in Africa,” Connor Bartz told KARE.
