Central Asia | culture | 17:55, 29 January 2018 | 2306

AKIPRESS.COM - Team Mongolia won gold Friday at the 28th International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado (USA) with a piece called "Secrets," depicting women and their secrets, Summit Daily reported.

Last year's winner, Team China, took silver with the "Thinker," depicting an orangutan contemplating an apple, and Team USA-Wisconsin (Vogt) took bronze with "Dance Devine," depicting leaves intricately intertwining.

For the contest, 16 four-person teams spent many careful hours combined on each sculpture, crafted from a 25-ton, 12-foot-tall block of snow over the course of four days before Friday's judging deadline.
