(ADW) Sunday afternoon saw Santa and an angel gradually take form in the Belval Shopping Center as two sculptors frantically attacked huge blocks of ice.

Standing in the middle of the Belval Plaza Shopping Center, under the fascinated gaze of the young and old, the two sculptors sawed and hammered the ice in all directions, with the two figures slowly emerging from their frozen homes.

A magical “show” requiring a lot of preparation for the sculptors, who never took off their gloves while working.

And finally, at about 3pm, all was finished! Santa and an angel in all their icy-glory stood proudly on their podiums. However, it is unlikely their life will be too long.
