China has built the world’s largest Santa Claus ice sculpture for the upcoming 25th International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Heilongjiang Province.

The ice festival has consistently increased in size over the years, with more talented artists involved and more impressive techniques and pieces on show. Ice sculpture decoration ranges from the modern technology of lasers to traditional ice lanterns. The climate of Heilongjiang is very cold and ice is plentiful. Objects of all sizes appear, up to and including building-sized pieces.
