Snow Sculptures So Big They’ll Literally Blow Your Mind


By Brett Gillin

Last week, the Harbin Ice Festival officially kicked off in China. What’s that you ask? It’s quite literally the most insane ice and snow-centric festival in the world. This year’s theme, “Ice Snow Harbin, Charming China Dream,” may not mean much to the average American, but one look at the main event is certain to delight anyone. The main event, in it’s 27th year, is the International Snow Sculpture Art Expo, which runs through February. Below, we’ve collected some of the most impressive sculptures, some of which are literally as large as medieval castles!

1: We don’t care if it’s made out of snow, ice, or sleet: This sculpture of a lion riding a dragon is bad ass!

4: Believe it or not, this is completely made out of ice and stands over 50 feet tall!

5: Don’t think these sculptures are just for looks. Many of them are actually designed so tourists can walk through them and even take a little ride down the ice slides.

7: The Chinese interpretation of Santa Claus is just as jolly as here in the states. Not a huge fan of the beard though.
