Gao Xianfeng, a 38-year-old farmer from Tonghua, Jilin province, spent several days carving ice sculptures of a dragon and a snake. But unlike other works of icy art, these were created on a frozen river.

Starting in December 2020, Gao practiced carving on the frozen river, and his sculptures drew praise from the people around him.

"The dragon is generally considered a spiritual totem for Chinese people," he said. "With Spring Festival coming soon, I want to express my best wishes to our motherland and all the people of our country."
