In 1988 Willem Bouter, Bert Meinen and I applied for the Valloire snow sculpting event. We were selected. But both my colleagues, for different reasons could not participate. So my wife, Marjo Heikkinen and I decided to go and we made a sculpture which we called Jericho (the walls of). Our Estonian colleague Tonu pitched in and we got the work ready in time. The inspiration was drawn from the Grindelwald work, four years earlier; the thaw had set in and, after the photo was taken, the walls sort of started to collapse inward and stopped when they touched each other.
