Mr Snowman and the great nose robbery: The Christmas artwork by British 'Pavement Picasso'

It looks like a clear-cut case of daylight robbery.

The bemused snowman stands there noseless while the little girl who has snatched his carrot beams broadly through a flurry of snowflakes.

This magical scene is the latest work of 'Pavement Picasso' Julian Beever, who creates 3D images with chalk.

The 49-year-old Briton, now based in Belgium, took two days to draw it on a shopping street in Brussels.

The girl holding the carrot is his two-year-old daughter Jane while the boy apparently pushing a giant snowball is his five-year-old nephew Louis Dutoit.

Beever said his greatest fear when drawing the scene was that it would actually snow.

'That would have washed away days of work and it was forecast at one point. On both days the temperature was down to zero.
