ISU art student sculpts Batman out of snow


NORMAL, Ill. -- An Illinois State University student has sculpted a snowy version of Batman.

Art major Anthony LaGiglia tells The Pantagraph that he used a plastic dining hall knife to make a statue of Batman out of snow. The 21-year-old junior from Frankfort says he used water to help form the sculpture. He says he "just did it for fun."

But the Batman has gotten quite the reaction. LaGiglia's fellow students have been using their cellphones to record the sculpture. Others are posing for pictures with it.
