Must See! Cool Ice-Covered Flower Sculptures!


What do you get when you put ice and flowers together?

At the “Flowers of the Snow Queen” exhibition in Kiev, Ukraine,  you would get the coolest ice sculptures, made with ice and fresh flowers! Artists have found an unique way to display beautiful, fresh flower arrangements in the dead of winter by freezing them inside perfectly transparent ice cubes.

Artists used a special technology to preserve the color, shape, vitality and most importantly, the beauty of the flowers. To create the transparency of the ice, 250 liters of distilled water were poured over the flowers in “layers” over the course of 7 days. 1000 roses, cyclamens, dianthus and orchids were used in the making of the sculptures.

Artists were inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen. And just like something out of a fairy tale, these sculptures had the power to bring together summer/winter and warmth/cold together.

Just look at these stunning ice bouquets!
