Broken water pipes can cause massive damage to homes and buildings. This is a fact that the owners of the Tian Qiao Art Building in Xicheng, Beijing know all too well. Their pipes recently burst in the dead of winter, flooding the building and spraying soon-to-be-frozen water over a beautifully kept garden. The accident caused destruction to years of work.
Or did it?
The water, at a temperature of 22 degrees Fahrenheit, quickly froze to anything it could after pipes burst at 5 AM.
This created an unexpectedly beautiful winter wonderland.
Upon hearing the news, locals and tourists alike scrambled to the building to see nature’s “art” for themselves.
Along with an untold number of selfies.
Luckily, work crews were able to turn the water off before the entire building was destroyed. Let’s just hope Mother Nature’s next artistic showcase is a little more subtle.
