|Drawing in the style of George Seurat is okay, but it's going to take a very LONG time...|
|Snowspondys have been featured in drawings for thousands of years. Here's a newly discovered image from a wall painting in one of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. It depicts a Pharoah giving a young Snowspondy his blessing. Note the symbolism in the drawing; The large eye in the upper quadrant most likely stands for an Iritis flareup, probably the reason the Snowspondy was being blessed. In addition the attendant (on the right) pays homage to the watery origins of Snowspondys through the symbolic water being poured which is then absorbed into the Snowspondy's body.|
|In the 1920's, when this cave painting was found, it was generally assumed that the figure on the left was a polar bear that had mysteriously wandered down to France. Today we know that this is actually a drawing of a Snowspondy, done over 6,000 years ago.|
|Of course, Snowspondys were not the only Spondys to be drawn on cave walls. Here are some other Spondys immortalized many thousands of years ago.|
|It was only after the most recent cleaning, that this remarkable drawing of a Snowspondy was revealed, peeking out from behind one of the militia-men in Rembrandt's Night Watch.|
|Snowspondys were often used as models for preliminary drawings by the impressionists, since Snowspondys having had experience with Iritis, knew what it was like to see things slightly out of focus. Here a Snowspondy poses on a bridge for Monet.|

|Another in our series of Snowspondy art. This time, it's a 'sampler' sewn by a young girl, Patience Thruitt, who was one of the early settlers of Spondyville. Miss Thruitt lived to the ripe old age of 101, and was well-known around town for running a boarding house for many years, as well as teaching music at what later became Uriah Stoop middle school. She is also remembered for her generous donation of the Gazebo in Fuselot Park.|

There has been speculation for many years that the building in the distance represents the Spondy Cafe, but that was never confirmed by the artist.
