Nele Azevedo's Ice Figurines

Some of you may have seen images of this amazing art installation done by Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo who sculpted one thousand tiny ice figurines and placed them on the sun-warmed cement steps of the concert hall in Berlin's Gendarmenmarkt Square in late 2009. The figurines, which began melting within half an hour, were meant to bring awareness to the World Wildlife Fund's warnings on Climate Change.
What a beautiful and haunting sight that must have been to see in person.
