Amazing Ice Sculptures

Ice is an everyday thing that we often take for granted in our day to day lives. Because it is such a common substance we often forget how amazing and beautiful it can really be. Because of it's pliable state it can be used to create fantastic artwork and the natural phenomena of freezing water often results in awesome, naturally occuring displays that are truly wonderful to look at. Here is a collection of some really cool ice sculptures and formations, some of these are naturally occuring and some feature precision, artistic design.
