At first, I thought that this was a figurine made of glass. I was astounded to find out that this is a static image of ice crystals. I find it interesting because Andrew Osokin captured such intricate detail. It had never occurred to me that ice crystals could produce wonderful artwork itself. Thanks to the scrupulous eyes and imagination of Andrew, I was able to see such an extraordinary picture.
