Walking with the Snowman™ #3, Three French Hens
Walking with the Snowman™ #3, Three French Hens
Snowman number 3 is on the path at the side of Huron Basin, behind the Lowry Outlet Mall.

Artist Lei-Mai has painted the Three French Hens in her signature tongue-in-cheek style. The Snowman™ proudly bears a large number 3 on his chest in the colours of the French flag and it stands against a bright orange background; a cheerful pop of colour against the drab winter sky. Three chic hens wearing berets peak out from beneath falling snow.

Walking with the Snowman™

In place at from November 22nd 2018 until January 6th 2019, Walking with The Snowman is the first public sculpture trail inspired by the Raymond Briggs’ classic Christmas story “The Snowman™”. The trail consists of twelve giant snowman sculptures situated across Salford Quays and MediaCityUK to celebrate 40th anniversary of the original publication of the book.

Themed around the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, each sculpture is designed and decorated by one of twelve professional artists, all of whom painted a Bee for this year’s Bee in the City event Link . At the end of the event, they will be auctioned with proceeds going to the Children in Need charity. As well as the large snowmen, there are also a number of smaller snowmen decorated by local schools and community groups.
