The Owner Of This NJ House Made A Massive Snow Sculpture Of The Lincoln Memorial In His Front Yard

Though NYC has seen its share of impressive snow sculptures (need we remind you of the snow rat? or this most recent octopus creation in Central Park?), but we haven’t seen something like this!

“Snow sculptor” Robert Schott recently made this impressive, 14-foot-tall recreation of the Lincoln Memorial entirely out of snow in the front lawn of his home in Cranford, New Jersey (about 20 miles from NYC). [featured image source: Instagram @jepoy28]

According to an interview with CBS2, Schott has created multiple snow sculptures over the past 18 years to bring joy to his neighborhood, from Snoopy to Olaf (from Frozen) to Thelma & Louise in their getaway car.

ā€œIā€™m always asked why do I do this. One is I like to create, but I think more importantly is the joy it brings to people that come to see it,ā€ Schott told the news outlet. He mentioned that the weather has to corporate, of course, and this season’s record amount of snow was a perfect opportunity. He also has had more time at home to complete it, since he doesn’t have to commute into NYC for work as usual.

It took about 60 hours to complete!

You can see on his Facebook page how he used plywood to ensure the snow was packed in the correct shape to create the chair and then build Honest Abe on top of it.
