An eye-opening project

This project is called 'melting men' by nele azevedo

Take a look at these pictures and and i hope that it will make us aware of what is actually happening to our world today

A brazilian artist nele azevedo, carved 1,000 figures out of ice
and placed them on the steps of the concert hall in berlin's gendarmenmarkt square.
with temperatures of 73 degrees fahreneheit, (23 degress celsius), the ice figures began melting
within half an hour. the project entitled 'melting men' was meant to bring awareness to the
world wildlife fund's warning, that melting ice could cause sea-levels to rise more than
3.3 ft by 2100.

I find this very fascinating.I love that the idea of artist making many small human figures out of ice..This shows how small the humans are in this world and when the ice melts,it shows that we will soon disappear from this world if we do not take any actions in what's happening to our earth now..This looks very simple yet it brings awareness and motivation to us all..

How i wished that this was shown to people all over the world so that is brings awareness to us all as it did to me..

Let us all take good care of our earth and make it a better place

Yours Truly,Yurika
