For this season, Dubai Garden Glow it created a cool oasis in the middle of the desert with sculptures carved in ice.

Sculpting art: The artist can be seen with a chisel creating delicate features into the mythical dragon. Also Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, and Brontosaurus, is one of the largest dinosaurs and features here. Their mega show – the glow garden was also transformed into a riotous world of lights and colours, replacing the old with a variety of new and intriguing installations. Each and everything from the Colourful World and the Sea World to the Happiness Street and Candy Land was built from scratch. Close to five hundred men and women worked together to put up the grand show at the garden. More than 10 million LED lights were used to make the garden glow this season. Artists had taken about three months to painstakingly build these intricately designed structures that shine bright at night. The attractions from the oil rigs to the water set are all handmade.

Through its art installations inspired by nature and wildlife, Dubai Garden Glow spreads the message of protecting the environment.
