It takes a lot of skill and dedication to be an artist. Now imagine if your medium was snow! Each year, countries around the world hold incredible snow sculpting competitions. The participants create stunning works of art that only last for a short period of time as the snow melts. These are some of the most spectacular snow sculptures ever made. Just wait until you see the Windblown Woman.
Dreaming Snow Maiden
This incredible snow sculpture was featured at the annual Harbin Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in China on Sun Island. The island is most known for the festival, which draws millions of visitors every year. Harbin is the capital of China’s Heilongjiang province. Despite the cold weather, people arrive in droves to see the enormous sculptures, which are illuminated at night and are quite a sight to behold. On a good day, temperatures may reach eight degrees Fahrenheit in the northeastern city. In addition to the snow and ice festival, the city features Russian architectural-style buildings as well as Siberian tigers and Bengal tigers at its famous tiger park.
