Carved entirely by 50 talented artisans from China's Harbin province using one month's time, 10,000 blocks of ice were used to produce this popular attraction of the year.
Also new in 2012 is the display of two special ice sculptures, designed by winners of a local community art competition - U Weng In from Escola Católica Estrela do Mar and George Ao from the Macau Deaf Association, and brought to life by the professional craftsmen from Harbin.
