Jim Denevan’s Giant Artwork on Frozen Lake Baikal

These incredibly huge concentric forms were created by American artist Jim Denevan by carving out ice from the frozen lake of Baikal in Siberia. The artist, who created similar massive art on sand in the Nevada desert last year, headed out to Siberia this year to draw these beautiful patterns on ice with a team of helpers and a broom. Denevan is known for creating expansive, meditative works with repetitive patterns and endless scale. The Baikal artwork spans an area of nine square miles!
