Ice sculpture is a form of sculpture that uses ice as the raw material. Sculptures from ice can be abstract or realistic and can be functional or purely decorative. Ice sculptures are generally associated with special or extravagant events because of their limited lifetime.
The lifetime of ice sculpture is determined primarily by the temperature of its environment and thus, a sculpture can last from mere minutes to possibly months. There are several ice festivals held around the world, hosting competitions of ice sculpture carving.
Ice sculpture is a beautiful yet temporary art form. Countless hours went into many of these amazing creations only to have them melt away. Luckily, they’re preserved through photography for us to marvel at for ever. In this post we present a few ice sculptures that will certainly impress you.
