The 15 Most Spectacular Ice Sculptures

Ice sculptures can be beautiful pieces of art that take a lot of time and effort to make. They are only limited by the artist’s imagination and can have a variety of themes. No two ice sculptures are alike; they can be as varied as a character from a popular comic book or TV show to a recreation of a historical site. Unfortunately, these pieces of art only last a limited amount of time due to their building material. Thankfully, there are many pictures online people have taken of beautiful ice sculptures from all around the world. Here are 20 most spectacular ice sculptures from around the world!
