ILLINOIS 2 | Block #10
Team Name: Two Blondes and a Burnette
Sculpture Title: The Quest for Bachelorette #3
Artist Statement: We had originally been thinking about doing a piece with a dragon and knight. Most of our snow sculptures have included a creature of some kind and what better creature is there to sculpt than a dragon? George came up with the idea to add a beefier knight to hold the shield and be able to hold up weight better. He suggested using Shrek since there was a scene in the movie with him as a knight and a fire-breathing dragon. We all love movies and thought kids/people would enjoy seeing a recognizable character.
