Master ice sculptors began work this week on what will eventually becomes a sprawling and frigid exhibition, as Jerusalem is set to host the International Ice Sculpting Festival next month.

The exhibition, scheduled to run March 6 to April 30, will include sculptures of famous Jerusalem landmarks, alongside fantasy figures and scenes, animals, and more, all to be displayed in a chilly 10 degrees below zero.

In order to fashion the massive ice sculptures, 35Chinese artists and sculptors were flown to Israel.

The festival is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors, from
Israel and around the world. Visitors will receive coats on entrance.
