Japan used bulldozers to make this massive Star Wars snow sculpture

Every winter in Japan, more than 2 million visitors attend the Sapporo Snow Festival to see over 200 sculptures made of snow and ice. This year, attendees were treated to an epic exhibit which appeared to have come from a galaxy far, far away.

Called ‘Snow Star Wars’ the 23-metre wide, 15-metre tall sculpture featured Darth Vader with his storm troopers and TIE fighters. It took 3,500 tons of snow, a set of bulldozers, an entire brigade of soldiers, and a month to make. The massive artwork reportedly had the most snow used ever for a sculpture in the festival’s 66-year history.
