A winning entry in The Forks warming hut contest wants to lick you up.
Huttie, a character inspired by the retro cult kids’ TV series, H.R. Pufnstuf, welcomes passersby with a bright-red tongue that waggles back and forth. Skaters pass through Huttie’s mouth into a gingerbread-like house and rest on the tongue.
The design is by Jennie O’Keefe and Chris Pancoe of Winnipeg, one of three winners in the 10th international Warming Huts: An Arts + Architecture Competition on Ice.
It’s only the second time Manitobans have won the event.
