It tumbled down Tuesday morning in all of its 60-foot glory, the Lake Superior Ice Sculpture, but it’s not stopping the Iceman from rebuilding. 

Roger “Iceman” Hanson has decided to move forward with creating his ice sculpture, it just won’t be setting a new Guinness World Record.

You can expect a unique and changing display in the days to come as Hanson creates a new display from the crumbled remains.

He told us he has learned a lot in the last month about the island, the characteristics of the land, water, and even wind.

“I’m going to go back in March and I’m going to be working on a lot of things that I will be able to attack this situation a little better. Me and Mother Nature aren’t done. We’re still in an all–out brawl. She won this round, but I’m going to get the next one,” said Roger Hanson, Sculpture Artist.

The sculpture will be on display through February with light shows, food vendors and Saturday seminars to learn about the Iceman.
