Of course, who built “Icehenge” and why isn’t exactly a mystery. Just a bunch of dudes being dudes.

Five friends spent two weekends building their own frozen version of Stonehenge on Rock Lake near the city of Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Drew McHenry, Kevin Lehner, Quinn Williams, Alec Seamars and Patrick Shields got the idea four years ago when they wanted to try out some antique ice harvesting equipment and have been building each year since.

Last year the weather did not cooperate, but his year the weather was cold enough to give it a go. Each pillar weighs 300 pounds with the crosspieces on top each weighing 200 pounds. The result is stunningly beautiful—especially in the light of the setting sun.

In order to commemorate the upcoming Olympic games and inject a bit of humor into the event, artist Jeremy Deller created this fully inflatable scale model of Stonehenge, which was recently erected at Glasgow’s Festival of Visual Art before heading off to London.
