Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo's Melting Men is a series of installations exhibited in public places around the world, designed to bring attention to global warming & its disastrous effects on the world's ice caps & climate in general. Made of 1000 figures cast in ice & seated on the sunlit steps of a Berlin concert hall, the piece pictured above was sponsored by the WWF to coincide with their release of a report detailing the effects of climate change in the Arctic.
