Team Quebec — Winterlude National Ice-Carving Championship

Sculpture title: We are proud

Carvers: Ross Baisas and Mowafak Nema

Location: Gatineau, Quebec

This ice sculpture tells the story of every athlete who participates in the Paralympic games. Bravery, courage, dedication, and confidence. These words describe how they take challenges, overcome their difficulties, and achieve their goals. The 3 life-size figures are active in environments of water, snow, ice, and gravity, which are part of their struggles and achievements. The Baisas and Nema team willfully paid attention to details, included facial expressions, and created a strong and most realistic composition in movement. Like the athletes, the sculptors faced these technical challenges, and we can only imagine how proud they are of their results.

On the left, a swimmer emerges from a wave. In the centre, a Paralympic athlete with a prosthetic right leg runs over the wave. On the right, a field hockey player sits on his sled and glides over the wave that has transformed into ice.
