Pharos consisted of six blocks of ice with fabric embedded in them created during the Winterlude Festival in Ottawa Canada. The sculpture represents a light/house that reassures and guides travelers in the night. Pharos personifies the passion of those who live in the northern hemisphere, who have adapted to the harsh climate by creating a rich culture of artistic activities during the dark winter months. The spirit of our resourceful forefathers who initiated the first outdoor winter Carnivals is depicted by figures that dance to entice the sun to return. They stand as a beacon of hope, from the dark towards the light.
