Fire and Ice - Dragon ice sculpture unveiled on Tartu Townhall Square

Uta Kuehrt 24.01.12

Yesterday, Tartu citizens celebrated the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Dragon with fire artists and the unveiling of an ice sculpture.

The unusual sculpture (created by artist Aivar Simson alias Simson Seaküla) unites two events – the year of the dragon and the celebration of 100th anniversary of Estonian film. The sculpture shows the first Estonian movie maker Johannes Pääsuke together with a dragon.

By the way – if you stay in our apartment No 5 or 6, you have a view from the window straight onto the sculpture!
