Fascinating Timelapse of an Elaborate Toucan Being Carved Out of a Single Block of Ice

Chainsaw artist Ryan Cook captured his process of carving an elaborate toucan out of a single block of ice in a fascinating one-minute timelapse. The award-winning carve, which took place at the High on Ice Winter Festival in Fort Saint John, British Columbia, actually took about two hours to complete.
