Fish and animals are typical ice sculpture fodder. This isn't your typical ice sculpture. It isn't that at all.

According to Obvious Winner, Japanese ice artist Koji Kareki and Ottawa's Kei Sakugawa carved this Queen from Aliens for the annual Winterlude winter festival in Canada. Very impressive!


If you dig their work (and really, why wouldn't you?), vote here for this year's best Winterlude sculpture.
