Artist outlines 90-metre fox on frozen lake in Lahti

For the sixth year in a row, the Finnish artist Pasi Widgren has left people speechless. During the first week of December, Widgren took to the frozen Lake Pitkajarvi with the aim of creating temporary art. Using a shovel, the famous artist removed snow from the surface of the icy lake to reveal a beautiful 90-metre fox.

Acknowledging that this is a dangerous and life-threatening task, Widgren intended to use ice awls in case the ice beneath him cracked. On Twitter, the artist revealed that he measured the ice thickness to be between 10 and 15 centimetres. Moreover, he shared that his work of art is a Christmas present to the hikers in Lahti.

See the gallery above for photographs of the 90-metre fox.
