The snowman pictured above on 106th street between Broadway and Amsterdam is a true work of art, appearing to blend various artistic styles and materials. We tried to decompose the sculpture like a true artiste might, and found the following potential influences:
Frenchman-turned-Russian Gerard Depardieu
Charlie Chaplin, given the snowman’s choice of hat.
And the Chicago Bears football player William “The Refrigerator” Perry for the snowman’s tough and stocky build.
See any other influences? Let us know in the comments.
