West Seattle snow: The ‘Snow Goddess’ of 35th SW

Nick Worsford sent us the photo last night and took credit for what he calls the “Snow Goddess.” She’s topless, headless, and on 35th SW. This being a G-rated site, we didn’t just add it into the middle of our photo roundups, but here in a standalone item, you can choose to click ahead, if you haven’t driven by and done a double take already:

That’s Providence Mount St. Vincent in the background (4800 block). P.S. We e-mailed Nick back to ask if he’s an artist: “Well, I did go to art school, but I am not an artist; I just like making things.”

    How is this sculpture anything but G-rated? Geez. Anyone who’d be offended by this should move to a freaking red state.

    Beautiful snow art.

      Paul, you’d be surprised by the feedback we get. Always enlightening, sometimes disheartening. I’ve learned over the years that some folks have a really low threshold for NSFW, so that’s the spirit in which we disclaimed – TR

    Very offended by such “pornography” boycott the west seattle blog smutpeddlers!

  • HelperMonkey January 16, 2012 (11:08 am)

    LOVE IT!~

    I was expecting something more tacky- like a snow nude version of sleeping lady or something.

    very tasteful-like a headless venus de milo almost

  • enviromaven January 16, 2012 (11:11 am)

    Very cool!

  • momof2 January 16, 2012 (11:14 am)

    I love that this Venus de Milo snow sculpture has real woman curves—not one of those unrealistic Barbie figures that would’ve melted before anyone was able to snap a photo! haha!

  • Beth January 16, 2012 (11:15 am)

    That’s great!

    Alki Jon, I’m assuming you are, well, just kidding.

  • Ajax January 16, 2012 (11:18 am)

    Snow seems to inspire displays of public art. I was looking out my upstairs window around 1 a.m. to find a couple making snowmen on my front stoop. They saw me watching them, kept working, then gave me a wave as they walked off down the street. I’ll be sad when they melt.

  • Jenny January 16, 2012 (11:27 am)

    Drove by this late last night, surprising and wonderful!

  • kim January 16, 2012 (11:28 am)

    Uh…very accurate snow representation of male anotomy–61st, between Admiral and Alki.
    Gotta smile!

  • jno January 16, 2012 (11:30 am)

    This is awesome. People can be such prudes.

  • Bill January 16, 2012 (11:41 am)

    So what is the big deal? Just before the Christmas, 2008 snowstorm, another snow sculpture at the same local appeared. It was dyed pink, remember? If not, I can provide a photo of that Venus de Milo.

  • a January 16, 2012 (11:45 am)

    That’s it? Disappointing. Not very exciting. The build up was a bit much.

  • Jim P. January 16, 2012 (12:12 pm)

    About as risque as a department store dress form. But they do have to worry about that one person in Outer Bluenose who will be offended and there always is one.

  • GreatsoFar January 16, 2012 (12:13 pm)

    Those gotta be silicon!

  • Candy January 16, 2012 (12:16 pm)

    I recall seeing his creation a few years ago. Love it.

  • Trileigh January 16, 2012 (12:23 pm)

    Hah, wonder if that Snow Babe’s shape will go the way of the rest of our “maturing” shapes when she begins to melt!

  • Valerie January 16, 2012 (12:53 pm)

    +1, Trileigh :)

  • Paul January 16, 2012 (12:53 pm)

    TR – I’m sure. I’m still learning how different this community is from my previous home on Capitol Hill.

  • Adaire January 16, 2012 (1:13 pm)


  • Stephanie January 16, 2012 (2:42 pm)

    I saw this under construction yesterday afternoon. Very cool!

  • Thomas January 16, 2012 (3:17 pm)

    Obviously NOT “topless”. I looked up close and there’s a clear “seam” of a shirt around the sculpture’s waist and shoulders, exactly where the edges of a shirt are. FTFY.

  • East Coast Cynic January 16, 2012 (3:29 pm)

    Beautiful:) anatomically right on:)

  • Ayden January 16, 2012 (3:40 pm)

    Cool. Provocative? I have seen more provocative displays created by snow plows.

  • GreatSoFar January 16, 2012 (4:16 pm)

    Okay, on Cap Hill there would be a piercing or three…

  • monosyllabic girl January 16, 2012 (6:14 pm)

    Hah! Well, I’m not sure how anatomically right on it is with missing head and limbs and all, but still, lookin good snow neighbor.

  • East Coast Cynic January 16, 2012 (6:49 pm)

    At least anatomically right in the good places:)

  • elizabeth January 16, 2012 (8:13 pm)

    She’s lovely. Thank you, Snow Artist!

  • denbol January 16, 2012 (8:25 pm)

    Oh yes WS is very different from most places!

  • westsidemegan January 16, 2012 (9:33 pm)

    I drove by this on my way to work for the afternoon and it stood there in all its glory! Then on my way home from work it appeared as tho someone totally demolished it. So sad!

  • Desertdweller January 16, 2012 (10:36 pm)

    I am sad to report that some loser smashed the sculpture as of 10pm. :-(

  • westseattlemom January 17, 2012 (7:47 am)

    This is beautiful! To those this offends, go back inside.

Sorry, comment time is over.
