Slovenia Is Awarded at the Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival (China)

The craftsmen from all over the world, including Slovenia, demonstrated their skills at the world’s largest Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin. A Slovenian master of ice sculptures Miro Rismondo, the author of the Ice Edge project (Ledena dežela), won the prestigious award for ingenuity.

He presented Slovenia with his project “Idrija Lace” (Idrijske čipke) carved out of ice cubes. With his sculpture “Lace Blow in the Wind”, the author emphasized the fragility and amazing strength of ice crystal that resembles the Idrija lace.
