Beta Sigma Theta brothers take time after classes to polish up their sculpture.

Next week, Winter Carnival will be upon campus and the month-long sculptures will come to an end. Beta Sigma Theta prepares for this deadline as they chiseled at their frozen blocks. The fraternity’s sculpture matches in size with last year’s entry, when they recreated the outlook rocks and savanna of The Lion King. This year’s sculpture also focuses on a dioramic setting, but it aims for non-miniscule scaling. So far, the sculpture features two humans in the front, a picnic table, and raised stonework in the back. The detailing hints at a carnival picnic area, but the role of the people in the front remains uncertain at this time.
