This polar bear ice sculpture slowly melts as we stand back and watch and do nothing. It’s a strong environmental statement by animal sculptor, Mark Coreth.
So far Coreth has installed two ice sculptures, one in London’s Trafalgar Square and one in the Nytorv Square in Copenhagen during the Copenhagen Climate Summit. He calls it the Bear in the Square and plans to erect similar sculptures in several cities across the world, including Oslo, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Moscow, New York, Toronto, Beijing and Sydney.
It takes about 10 days for the bear to melt and with each drop, we’re reminded of our delicate environment and the rate at which it is changing.
