When Liu Yang saw his sculpture Snow Kids in Beijing's Winter Olympics Park, he said he felt it was a "great honor".

In late January, a group of 15 sculptures created by artists from around the world, including Snow Kids, went on public display to welcome the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

Snow Kids was the first to be installed in early November in the park, located in Beijing's Shijingshan district.

The 5-meter-tall sculpture is made of more than 100 pieces of cut and welded stainless steel.

Over the past decade, Liu, 50 — a sculptor born in Harbin, Heilongjiang province — together with his wife, Liu Qin, has created around 80 sculptures in 34 countries worldwide, including Russia, France, Costa Rica and Tunisia.
