Ice men

Feeling the need to take a break from the dreaded essay i had a look through the sites i save on my bookmarks to give myself a visual treat, I came across these fantastic little sculptures made from ice, these were created by Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo as an art instillation consisting of hundreds of these little figures, The instillation lasted until the final ice sculpture melted. Im Not to sure what the concept behind this was as it didnt mention it but my thoughts are that maybe it was created to show how global warming is affecting the population, i find this such an inspiring and interesting way to engage with the public outside of a gallery.
