New to the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships, team Great Britain-Wales will create The Seven Deadly Sins, a piece depicting caricatures of the seven deadly sins. According to the sculptors, “ENVY is reacting to GREED, LUST is observing PRIDE, and SLOTH and WRATH are both being affected by GLUTTONY.”

See their model below and check back during the event (Jan. 22 – Feb. 3, 2013) for team updates, photos, winners and more. Each team consists of five people: four sculptors and one team representative who is not allowed to sculpt. Read more about the event and check out a few of the other teams selected for the 2013 event.
