Thai team wins 2nd prize at Sapporo International Snow Sculpture

A snow sculpture in the shape of the Naga Fireballs of Thailand won the second prize at the 48th International Snow Sculpture, a highlighted activity at the 74th Sapporo Snow Festival, held from 3 to 7 February, in Hokkaido, Japan.

Thailand’s snow sculpture not only told the story of the Naga Fireball phenomenon, a natural event based on religious beliefs, when hundreds of fireballs rise out of the Mekong River into the sky before disappearing, but also displayed the beautiful and delicate art of Thai carving to international eyes.

Sponsored by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the members of the Thailand carving team were Kusol Boonkobsongserm, Amnoausak Srisuk, and Kritsana Wongtes. Other competing teams came from Hawaii (USA), Indonesia, Poland, Singapore, Portland (USA), Lithuania, Mongolia, and South Korea.
