Craftsmen from different regions of Russia have created 30 sculptures at the X Festival of Angels and Archangels in Izhevsk. The work had been begun on January 8, and residents and guests of the town could admire the ice figures on Epiphany.
The sculptures were placed on three places: at the Mikhailo-Arkhangelsk Cathedral, the water tower on the Central Square of Izhevsk and the spring named after I. D.A. Prigova. Here you can see the works “Nezhnost”, “Trubyashii angel”, “Vifleemskaya zvezda”, “Pastushok”, “Golub’ mira”, “Inmare, syulammme chylkyt kar” (God, cleans my soul), “Nadezhda”, etc. – they are all different, the individual style of the master is felt.
The festival has been held for the 10th year and gathers sculptors from all over the country. In 2021, more than 40 craftsmen from Udmurtia (Izhevsk, Alnashi village, Malaya Bodya village, Syumsi village, etc.), St. Petersburg, Perm, Sochi, Ryazan, Crimea and Belarus came to the event. Someone is participating in the event for the first time, but there are those who have already worked with the Udmurt ice.
