A Vancouver man has spent 13 hours creating two nearly life-sized orcas made of snow and sand on Jericho beach.
The novice sculpturist Aaron Cambrin says this is the first time he has tackled a project this big.
“The only other thing I have done are snowmen, so this is my first time doing something on this scale,” he says.
Inspired by Metro Vancouver’s recent snowfall, Cambrin says this isn’t the first time he’s thought of creating the sculptures.
“I kind of got the idea from the last snowfall from last winter. I thought of making them, but never really got around to it.”
Cambrin says his love of orcas all started when he visited the Vancouver Aquarium as a child.
“I just love orcas, they’re my favourite animal. It all started when I was a kid, when I visited the aquarium when they used to have the killer whales.”
He adds that the location of his sculptures was intentional.
“I decided Jericho was a nice place and it would go great with the orcas since it’s coastal.”
