[Ice Festival Grounds]
Prominently poised against the skeletal twigs of the bushes bordering the trampled path through the snow, a snow sculpture of a stern schoolmaster glares down at all who pass. Extended in an emphatic gesture, his forefinger stabs the air before him with the familiar disapproval well remembered by any student caught indulging in frivolous leisure instead of study. You also see some gentle stairs leading southward and a snow-covered path.
Obvious paths: north, east, west.
