Big Ben ice sculpture being created in London

By Super Admin

London, August 20 (ANI): Sculptors are creating Big Ben on ice as part of a reconstruction of the London skyline.

The sculpture, measuring 10m in length and 3m in height, is being crafted by some of the world's top ice sculptors amongst five landmarks.

"This is the first time we have been asked to design and produce a project of this scale," the Telegraph quoted sculptor Duncan Hamilton as saying.

"The challenge to present such unique large sculptures in five city centres, at the same time and on the same day is wonderful," he added.

Each scaled-down replica, weighing up to a 3.5 tonnes, is estimated to take four men about five hours to assemble and create.

They are to be unveiled by the Smirnoff Co in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool and London on September 11. (ANI)
