Spooky Ice Sculptures Inspired by Edvard Munch’s Famous Painting


It’s October which means we’re featuring a full month of spooky art! This stunning scene of headless female sculptures, created with snow and ice, was inspired by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch’s famous painting, “Girls on the Bridge.” As part of Norway’s “Munch in Snow and Ice” exhibit in 2011, artist Mark Szulgit took Munch’s two-dimensional painting and transformed it into a spectacular three-dimensional scene.

The modern interpretation of Munch’s classic painting consisted of 13 icy figures ascending a bridge that was nearly 50 feet long and about 15 feet tall. It was prominently placed in front of the Royal Palace for all to see. (Love how the sculptures eerily glowed at night.)
