Local artist and contractor Chris Glaser took advantage of nature’s building materials last week when he sculpted a likeness of a meditative Buddha from snow and ice.
The sculpture sat contentedly on Glaser’s front lawn on Cemetery Street, teaching a tacit lesson of patience with the brutal cold. With the coming warm, however, there’s also a lesson in impermanence to be gleaned.
