Chinese Ice Santa

Harbin Ice Santa (2008) I.C. enhancedThe world-famous Harbin Ice Festival in nippy northern China is back again, and this year they've sculpted the biggest Father Christmas ever: 525 feet long (160 of those Euro meter thingies) and 78 feet high (24 meter thingies). That beard looks like an avalanche! It's dangerous work, with sculptors slipping about all over the place. Elf n safety? What elf n safety? But the night illuminations are fantastic.
