These sculptors are master carvers who spend a month here each year turning two million pounds of ice into colorful ice sculptures  in an environment of nine degrees. They are from Harbin, China, the capital city of China's northernmost province, Heilongjiang, across the border from Siberia, Russia. Harbin, China has been host of the Ice and Snow Festival for more than 25 years, welcoming approximately 800,000 visitors annually.  (Rod Lamkey Jr./The Washington Times)
