World’s Largest Easter egg out of crystal-pure ice – Russian Book of Record

To celebrate Easter, artists at the Gallery of Russian Ice Sculpture made an Easter egg out of crystal-pure ice. The block of ice, weighing almost one ton, was publicly turned into the graceful egg, revisiting the best traditions of Carl Faberge. The achievement was registered in the Russian Book of Records.   

The artists were working in the street when the temperature was well above zero. They had to hurry before the ice started to melt. It took them a little more than an hour to turn the block of ice into a beautiful Easter egg.

The egg is two meters high, weighs 800 kg, and measures 90 cm in diameter. Last year’s sculpture was about 1.5 m high and weighed half a ton.
