Towering warriors, fearsome dragons and other fanciful figures shimmer under colored lights at the secluded, forested Ice Park in Fairbanks, Alaska every March. Sculptors come from  around the globe to lay hands on the purest ice in the world, long ago dubbed the “Arctic Diamond.” From giant blocks of ice weighing thousands of pounds, sculptors create imaginative scenes that leave spectators in awe. Sculports call this “the dream of ice.” Viewers call it magic.
