Ice carver Robin Johnson is shaping two soldiers that will greet visitors who enter the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Ice Palace. Johnson said the most difficult aspects of ice carving are getting the sculpture's proportions correct and wielding a chainsaw, which he called "a brutal instrument of death." This is Johnson's fourth time volunteering on the Ice Palace.
