Ice Ice baby / Melting men by Nele Azevedo

Since 2005, Azevedo has been setting up her Melting Men in various countries around the world. The installation, Melting Men, was meant to spotlight the World Wildlife Fund's warning that melting ice could possibly cause levels to rise more than 3.3 ft by 2100.

Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo carved the figures out of ice and placed them on steps in the central Gendarmenmarkt square where they began to melt within about half an hour.
