The third festival “Udmurt Ice” will be held for the first time on the site near the monument of Friendship of Peoples in Izhevsk from January 27 to February 2. 15 teams will take part (two people each) from all over Russia and from other countries this year.
The theme of the festival is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Statehood of Udmurtia.
A sketch of our team, directly a sketch was drawn by my colleague Yuri Konyukhov. It’s called Vumurt - it’s water. In this case, Vumurt is the defender of the reservoir that protects Izhevsk Pond and all the reservoirs of Udmurtia
Construction work is already underway. Sculptors grind ice, cut off excess and form a skeleton of a figure.
Sculptures can be admired after the festival. They stand to thaw.
Last year, 16 teams created figures on the embankment on the theme “My Springs”, but the artists were not limited to the “theme of water”.
