We finally got some snow. At the top of Art Hill, two sentinels keep watch over the sledders below. It wasn't such a great day for sledding. The snow wasn't deep enough to cover the top of all the grass and it turned to drizzle by mid-day.
These two do appear like guards on the hilltop. The thought made me notice something about the statue of St. Louie. He's looking to the left. That's a theme in some Euro-American sculpture, Michaelangelo's David being the best known example. A statue of a heroic figure looks for danger to the left because the right is protected by God. The saint-king's sword in the form of a cross, held in his right hand, takes the idea further. The snowman, not knowing any better, stares straight ahead, searching the horizon for hot chocolate.
