Wow, those are some really cool sculptures I wonder how long it took to make the seahorse

Alejandra Martinez replied:

The museum has been open for years. They really only replace part of it at a time. The guide said they had recently replaced one of the horses head's. You could tell it was crystal clear and less frosty than the other parts of that sculpture.

I know it's cold in that part of the world but is it cold enough to keep everything there frozen how it is in the video or is it kept frozen by something else (I know it probably isn't this but it's just an example) like liquid nitrogen.

Alejandra Martinez replied:

They use something that is basically and air conditioner to keep it at 25 degrees

How long does it take to freeze a plant in the ice orb.
Alejandra Martinez's picture

Alejandra Martinez replied:

Good question! I don't know. I imagine as long as it takes regular water to freeze in 25 degrees.
