Our London Ice Bear



See The magnificent life-size Ice Bear in Trafalgar Square.
It’ll be there from Today Friday 11th December, gradually melting as a symbol of the threat of climate change and the plight of the Arctic in particular.
slowly melting over that time to reveal a bronze skeleton.
Inspired by the Arctic landscape, it’s a life-sized ice sculpture of a male polar bear in hunting pose.
The public will be invited to touch the ice sculpture. Artist Mark Coreth hopes that by touching this sculpture audiences can become sculptors themselves and make a direct connection with the bear and its icy Arctic kingdom, now under threat from man-made climate change.

to see videos,how it was made, more info, check out, and see the finished Bear in the Square
