In recent years snowmen have become more elaborate projects put up in people's front yards.
Some snowmen are much more specialized in how they are built and become temporary works of art.
One Michigan woman has combined her love for sharks and her love for art.
Michigan Woman Builds Snow Sharks In Her Yard
Can you imagine driving or walking down the street and seeing sharks in someone's front yard? That is what you will see in one of Madison Heights, neighborhoods in Michigan.
The artist's name is Jennifer Ramirez, and she happens to be a teacher and artist in her community of Madison Heights. Recently Ramirez took advantage of the heavy snow and spent three days creating the sharks. I have to say she did a fantastic job, especially with the addition of the color really made these sharks stand out and look life-like.
Ramirez's attention to detail is top-notch. Just look at those teeth and the red color inside the mouth. These sharks would be fun to take pictures with. What a great job Ramirez did with these sharks, could you imagine what she could do if her yard was bigger?
