  This time the snow sculpture from BIT utilizes the Red Boat as the foundation and it is based on the shape of rock. The DNA helix structure on the lateral of the snow carving implies the pass of the red spirit from generation to generation. There is a huge historical scroll on the rock showing the achievements that Communist Party of China has made through the years.


  “For this competition, we design the snow sculpture using the shape of rock to hold up the Red Boat. The front of the scroll shows the process from the beginning of the wheat with grass to the wheat harvesting, implying our great country has achieved a lot nowadays through hardships. At the same time, on the back of the scroll, we design the pagoda of Yanhe River as the initial point of the BIT. Roads, bridges, vehicles and internet are also put into consideration to highlight the development of our country in the new era. At the top of the Red Boat, we design the pigeon from the element of the logo of BIT, which shows the spirits of pursuing peace and progressing with perseverance.” Ren Guangqi, leader of the snow carving team of BIT, introduced.


  With the guidance of the school, the team of snow carving initially decided to take the Red Roat as the creation theme in the stage of planning and designing. In order to present the Red Boat truly and convey the spirit of the Red Boat accurately, the team of snow carving took part in study and practice activities. At the end of November, the temporary branch of the Communist Party of China in the team of snow carving went to the south lake of Jiaxing in Zhejiang Province taking the clay draft of the Red Boat modified for several times to carry out practical study. At the end of December, they also attended to visit the exhibition of great achievements of the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the People’s Republic of China.
