Melting Men

Although this installation is about 6 month old, I thought I'd bring it back to light as we are now in the northern hemisphere summer. Brazilian artist, Nele Azevedo's installation of frozen men attempts to show how the effects of melting ice can be felt worldwide. The artist metaphorically brings the Arctic ice melt to the equator by showcasing a number of thought-provoking figures, carefully sculpted out of ice, who seem to sit in contemplation as the midday heat slowly erodes their bodies.
