Name any country that has a white winter and she will be having some sort of Snow and Ice Art form into existence since 1883, when in the capital city of Minnesota, St. Paul, several ice sculptures were build as part the city’s Winter Carnival. Since then the amazing snow and ice magicians performed all over the world without any break.

Splendid Ice and Snow Architectural Marvels
The modern building of snow and ice sculptures has its origin already in the Mandschu time, the first exhibition was held only in 1963. The annual festival dates however started after 1985, since then the festival grew to a mass event, to which millions tourists come from all over the world. Thus the sculptures became more beautiful and more artistic each year. These days even Ice and Snow Wall Sculptures involve too much of technology. For more details see my collections of videos in this blog.
Last year teams from Russia, Japan, China, Canada, France and even of South Africa made replicas of the Great Wall of China in the Ice and Snow Festival of Harbin (China). See one example yourself.
You will be surprised to view at the following sculpture of some Indian native of North America and in the northeast of China. The figure was built by a Canadian team.
Every year Lord Buddha statues remain the center of attraction for the tourists. These Buddha statues are the most photographed and admired sculptures.
Remember that any Snow festival any where remains an event for artists, while the Ice festival showcases the masters of this field. Currently Americans, Germans and Chinese dominate this arena.
