A festival in the Belgian city of Bruges combines ice sculpture with light art. A hundred projections and a 523 meter-squared LED wall bring the crystal-clear sculptures to life.

These sculptors come from all over Europe to bring ice maidens, giants, dragons and other fantastical beings to life, while a light artist, that normally has his work displayed at big concerts, created a flurry of movement and light that further amplify the effect.

They had to brave freezing temperatures to create their art, but to some of them minus 10 degrees Celsius means nothing when they come from such icy countries.

The exhibit will be on display until 6 January, but in the meantime the artists will be moving on to Germany for another festival to delight with their creations.

Hopefully none of them has Elsa-like powers and brings any to actual life.
