Many Swarovski collectors have either seen, heard of, or own the Swarovski Maxi Swan.  It is a massive piece of crystal, measuring 6.5″ high and weighing in at nearly 6.5 lbs.

But the Swarovski crystal Maxi Swan would look like a cygnet in comparison to the creation for the Toronto Santa Claus parade, which was held November 21, 2010 in Toronto, Canada.

Swarovski commissioned a truly gigantic swan float for the event.  It is over 8′ tall and adorned with hundreds of thousands of tiny Swarovski stones.  The Swarovski float decorator states that she spent 41 hours applying the 22 litres of stones to the float. She would pat handfuls of the Swarovski stone glitter as a time to the swan structure.  It must have been a very shimmery swan and had an over-the-top WOW factor in it!

I’ll be on the lookout to see if Swarovski does more floats in holiday parades.  This piece would be very unique for Swarovski crystal fanatics to have in their collection!  By the way….where would you park this thing????
