Freezing Man 

In spite of the cultural revolution, China hosts one of the most amazing art festivals on the planet. The Harbin Ice And Snow Festival runs from Jan 5 through Feb 15th and hosts an entire city made of ice.



From the website of R. todd King: "The ice festival, a few miles away from the snow festival, is anything but dull and colorless.  Crowds flocking to the entrance are greeted by dance music booming in the distance, as if at an outdoor pop concert.  And bright neon colors shine everywhere, buried within huge blocks of ice forming structures as high as thirty meters, such as this huge structure beyond the entryway.  You can just make out people standing atop its blue and red stairway."
