Félix Pinotte wanted to win over a young woman he had his eye on. So while she and her family were visiting family in the United States, the Edmundston man spent three weeks in February, 1922, carving a giant, four metre-high statue of her in their front yard. Just as they were to return, warm, rainy weather melted the statue. Worse still, the woman was engaged to marry someone she’d met on the trip. The unfortunate incident earned Pinotte the name “Bonhomme de Glace” or "Ice Man."
