雪人:短暫的美  留下永恆的印記 The Snowy Story of the Snowman
「你想要堆個雪人嗎?」
>> ✶萬中無一的超級味覺者 Are You a Picky Eater or a Supertaster?

    “Do you want to build a snowman?” When this question comes up, we know it’s an invitation for wintry fun. People have been creating charming characters out of snow, like Frosty the Snowman, for as long as anyone can recall. However, there is more to the history of snowmen than you might have imagined.

    Snowmen might be relatively simple structures these days, but in the European Middle Ages, they were often prized forms of art. Few people had the means to acquire art supplies, but a big snowfall brought ample free material with which to express one’s creativity. Building snowmen became a beloved winter pastime, drawing people to wander through town and admire these temporary works of chilly art. What makes this era even more remarkable is that snowmen were not just a product of common folk; they were the canvas for renowned artists as well. Among them was the 19-year-old Michelangelo, whose artistic expertise extended beyond sculpting marble. In the winter of 1494, the ruler of Florence, Italy, commissioned him to craft a snowman within the courtyard of his mansion.
