Finns in snowshoes create temporary artwork on golf course.

HELSINKI : An ephemeral artwork made with thousands of footsteps in the snow has captured attention near Finland’s capital of Helsinki.

Under the guidance of local resident and amateur artist Jane Pyykko, 11 snowshoe clad volunteers stamped a serif complex geometric patterns on a golf course. Together the design resembles a huge snowflake.

The artwork which was completed over two days, measures about 160 meters (525feet) in diameter. Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat said it could be the largest snow drawing ever made in the Nordic country.

This was a way for me to develop as a human being, Pyykko, who is inspired by visual effects and has created smaller snow illustrations by himself , told the newspaper. (AP)
