Artist Walks On Snow In Siberia All Day To Create A Great Dragon Mural
Making a snow angel is easy. Try making a snow dragon like the one Simon Beck created! This snow lizard was seen in Yakutsk, Siberia. Beck, an orienteering fan, uses snowshoes and compass to make all of his creations. The dragon was made for a movie called “Drakony”.
Beck came up with the idea of making snow murals when he was tired after skiing one day, but still wanted some exercise (for his orienteering). He went outside and walked on a lake until he had created a fabulous star. Beck begins from the center of the would-be mural, uses a compass to plan out points and straight lines. He says that curves need the most practice.
