The demo sculpture is created by the world's most titled Latvian ice and sand sculptor Kārlis Īle in colaboration with Maija Īle, depicting Michelangelo's work “Pietà” in a new format. The authors of the sculpture say that "Michelangelo is one of the greatest artists of all time. The sculptor is able to see and discover the very complex relationship between beauty and horror, love and hate, joy and pain, life and death. His sculpture "Pietà" has earned special attention. The special strength of such ingenious work lies in the fact that they stand still and do not lose their relevance even today, when many mothers mourn their dead sons, and many hope that these sacrifices are being made for greater and more noble cause. ”
