Ice work if you can get it: Giant dragon measuring 80-yards long and 20 wide is carved out of snow by 100 artists for a skiing festival in China

This incredible snow dragon measuring 80 yards long and 20 wide is stunning visitors to a ski resort in China - and it is not even finished yet.

The craftsmen began work on the giant sculpture in Changchun, Jilin Province, on December 18 and expect to be finished by the end of this month.

This should be just in time for the Jingyuetan Vasaloppet International Skiing Festival, which opens on January 4.

The dragon is shown with its front claws raised in the air and jagged teeth arching up into the sky and is being constructed by artists using ice picks and a mechanical digger.

They use ladders to access the higher reaches of the sculpture, all the while taking care not to leave any unsightly dents.
