The Snowglobe was a miniature representation of the
Larger Inflatable layout of St. Basils catherdral.
So each Tower was replicated as a smaller 30cm tall version
within the snowglobe.
Technically this snowglobe which was only 1.2m diameter
involved a lot of design effort.
The individual Domes were separate air chambers within a
larger Spherical chamber.
This larger chamber was filled with Helium to enable to ball
to be easily managed by the young girl who represented Russia in the opening
The SnowGlobe had plastic snowflakes inside the main chamber
and also Imagine designed LED lighting units battery operated to illuminate the
main inflatable during the event.
The battery packs were painted white and attached to the
base of each Dome via a Velcro tab. The snow flakes then hide the lighting
units and battery packs.
The ball was tested many times in our unit for function and
durability to make sure the battery packs and lights along with snowflakes
worked in every planned setting.
