I suspect the piano is just a basic electronic keyboard with a lot of ice decoration.
Nikolai Thursday Jan 24 08:35 PM
Coldplay on the piano anyone or how about the Artic Monkeys?
lumberjim Thursday Jan 24 08:37 PM
yeah. It really should be labeled Ice Organ. If it was a true piano, there would have to be wires and hammers and stuff. Im not seeing that kind of stuff there. id like to see more detailed shots of the innards

yeah, but if there was an IotD labeled "Ice Organ" people would be so disappointed when it turned out to be, you know, kind of like a piano.

But on the bright side, snow cones are really cheap.

IOTD has covered the Harbin festival before, if you want to read a bit more about it.

somehow, i dont think that is a 100% ice paino so how did it get into the ice sculpture competition?

The paino slept with one of the judges.

C'mon, this is your forte as well as mine.

Your argument is sustained, though I don't care for your tone. I shouldn't mention it, knowing how bad your tempo is: it can explode in a minuet. Eh, I'll just pitch this out there, you duet the way you want.

We'd had quite an intermission there, its about time for an encore. Aria-lise that this is a beat-up and I sound like a strumpet, but its a cymbal of my true thoughts.

Well, ain't that just grand? Check hymn out, thinking he can just march in here and drone on like that. Chord you do me a favor and try a little modulation? I never mezzo nice a guy, but you've mode me over with your at-edude.
ZenGum Friday Jan 25 12:25 PM
Are you accusing me of violins?

I think Zen's & Shawnee's G-strings are wound a little too tight.

Look on the bright side. During the Cultural Revolution, anyone wasting time creating such sculptures would have been arrested and sent to a re-education camp to confess their crimes against the motherland and Chairman Mao! Now they get money and fame for such works!
