In Pictures: The 32nd Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival

Workers putting the finishing touches on the ice sculptures at Harbin Ice and Snow World a day before the 32nd Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin city, China's northern Heilongjiang province. The displays take up a massive 750,000 square metres of space and include hundreds of buildings created by carvers who started working on their designs in late November. Typically, sculptors choose to recreate iconic landmarks or images inspired by Chinese fairytales. The festival will run from Jan 5 to Feb 5, 2016.
