the ice bear project

Post image for the ice bear project

on friday, december 11th, animal sculptor mark coreth unveiled a life-sized ice sculpture of a polar bear in london’s trafalgar square, following one that went up in copenhagen the week prior. the sculptures will melt from exposure to the environment and people touching them, until all that remains is a bronze skeleton. they are meant to send a message about the environment and the melting polar ice caps that are endangering the lives of polar bears. furthermore, people who touch the bears will affect their shape and deterioration, symbolic of the effect we all have on nature and the environment, and hopefully inspiring more people to do something about this problem.

the project plans on unveiling more ice sculptures around the world, so keep an eye out for them…read more about the project here.
