Summary: Newsreel item on a snow sculpture exhibition in Geneva, probably February 1917.
Description: The snow sculptures have been made in a park. Some are intentionally comic but a few are obviously intended as serious art. The various 'artists' retouch their creations. According to the caption one sculpture of a German soldier 'surrendering' (shown) was well-received.
