White Knight

The snow scupture "Bucéfalo" from the Breckenridge Snow Sculpture Competition.

As near as I can tell Bucefalo is a transalation of Bucephalus, which was Alexander the Great's horse. Although the likeness is imperfect, as Bucephalus was allegedly a black horse. Regardless, after so many hours spent looking at Staunton chess sets I can't see anything other than a knight. Either way, it's a beautiful snow sculpture.
