|Ice sculpture is a unique form of sculpture that requires ice as the raw material. It requires a considerable amount of hard labor to carve on ice due to the volatility and ductility of the material.The best ice sculptures can only be produced on materials made from pure and clean water and also have the minimum amount of air bubbles. A frozen river in Sweden and the ice quarries in Alaska meet the requirements of larger and clear blocks of ice. Ice sculptures are now mostly created by CNC machines and molding systems and the color effects make the sculptures look even more attractive.
