This year's incarnation of the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden, which opened on Dec 11, features 19 Art Suites, uniquely crafted by artists from around the world. This suite by designers Tjasa Gusfors and David Andren, named Show Me What You Got, is dominated by a three-dimensional peacock, whose plumes are etched on the walls of the room. The hotel is built annually from ice and snow sourced from a nearby river, and the walls, ceilings and floors become canvases for artists of all disciplines until the hotel melts and everything goes back to Mother Nature in spring.
