- Story Text: An international ice sculpture contest in Moscow reached its final stage on Thursday (February 8) as 16 teams, mostly from Europe and North America, displayed their work.
The contest -- the third this winter -- has attracted tourists and Moscow residents alike.
Briton Jerry James, who created an ice sculpture he entitled "Frozen Forest", said the way to survive the cold temperatures in Moscow was to stay active. He said temperatures dropped noticeably as darkness fell.
Subjects of the ice sculptures varied from Russion folklore to avant-guard compositions.
