    Amazing

    ...what can be done with limitless labor.

    When in college we had an annual winter festival with snow sculptures and many years latter we went to the winter festive in Quebec with amazing ice sculptures---but nothing to compare to this.

    Well at least the material is cheap. I wonder if the workers are paid? Or if it's a voluntary thing?

    Pretty astonishing body of work there.
    I found it odd that the busts depicted were all with occidental features. What’s with that? But, I only got 52/104 shots, so maybe there are more.

    I know it's in China.

    China's tourism industry is one of the most lucrative industry in the world. Since the Chinese economic reform in the late seventies, tourism has become a rapidly expanding sector and a great asset to the domestic economy.Feb 1, 2018
