Looking at these crazy pictures, you’d think aliens had landed on the North Pole to create “ice circles,” but obviously that isn’t the case. These incredibly huge spirals were created by artist Jim Denevan and his crew who in 2010 created a large scale artwork on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia.

In a quest to create the world’s largest work of art, Jim and his team drew these beautiful patterns by carving into the fresh snow on the frozen lake, using the white of the snow to contrast with the dark ice. Incredibly the whole thing ended up spanning an area of nine square miles. The photos say it all.

It must have taken some incredible dedication to finish all of that…and some very cold feet.
