The weight of the single block Ice Sculpture can be supported by most banquet tables.
There are many variables when it comes to the longevity of an Ice Sculpture. For example, temperature, direct sunlight, size of the ice sculpture, ventilation, indoor/outdoor event, all play a very important role. On average, the life expectancy of an Ice Sculpture placed indoors will last for approximately 6-8 hrs depending on design.
You cannot stop it or slow down the melting process. Only if it is displayed outside in cold conditions may an ice carving be preserved. The beauty of an Ice Sculpture is that something so perishable is sculpted into a work of art only to be viewed once.
