HARBIN CHINA - A CITY OF SCULPTURE, A FESTIVAL OF ART - ALL IN ICE!

I seem to be finding a ton of great art to show you in the last week - probably the universe telling me to get my butt back here and start posting some new tips and advice for selling your art again! I have been neglectful of late because I have been quite busy selling my art as well as moving to a new state (you can read about all my art projects and commissions etcetera at my Life Is Like Art Blog).

Anyway, after finding the wonderful commercial that used stupendous Origami sculpture to get it's point across, the next thing I came across was a movie on The Harbin China Ice Festival and I was blown away!

Take a look at this video:

I have to say, after viewing that video, that I am totally blown away, too! I can't imagine how beautiful these sculptures must be in person when one can really appreciate the overall size and the precision used to create each one. And, adding to all of this, the lighting makes them extra magical. A real feast for the eyes--great find, Ms. Pop Art Diva!

It amazes me the things people can create sculptures from. I used to live in Imperial Beach, CA where there is always a huge sand sculpting contest every year. Amazing - just like these ice sculptures!
