For a few months each winter, Harbin, China, turns into a fantastical “city of ice.” From January 5 through February 25, this chilly provincial capital plays host to the Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival. Artists create an incredible display of large-scale sculpture, architecture and design built entirely from snow and ice. The spectacle may be temporary, but for award-winning ice sculptor Jinnan Zheng, the preparation begins long before the first snowflakes fall.

    Ah, it's sad to see it all melt, but… at the same time, it makes the works incredibly powerful, I think.

    China has finally gone full capitalist. It might be a form of neo capitalism but it's definitely capitalism. And while their govt still tries to subvert and control pretty much everything to this day it's a much more hands off approach now and the people seem a lot happier and less oppressed than in decades past.
