HARBIN, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- In China's "ice city" -- Harbin jordan 6 for sale , capital of northeastern Heilongjiang Province, a group of sculptors have been making ice lanterns for decades.

The center's 30 professional designers have worked on 70 large exhibitions in 30 countries, including some in tropical countries such as Egypt.
