A snow sculpture of a bear and walrus performing an Eskimo dance is seen in Anchorage on Thursday, as part of the Fur Rendezvous snow sculpture competition. Each contestant is given a block of snow from which to sculpt their art with the winners going to the National Snow Sculpting Competition. The 17-day festival includes the World Championship Sled Dog races, dog weight pull, fur auction and other events to break up the long Alaska winter.
