Brrrrr its getting chilly!

As the weather chills down, and we all go brrrr (depending where you are blogging from of course), I think I have found you something quite "cool" but also very eco, this artist sends a very important message about global warming and its effect of our sea level, ice in the Artic and eventually humans. 

Melting Men is a series of art installations from the Minimum Monument project created by Brazillian artist Nele Azevedo.  Since 2005, Nele has been setting up her melting men in various countries around the world.  Carved from ice 1000 figures of ice are placed in monumental places.  The ice sculptures will start to melt after 30-40 minutes. 

I love these little men in their different stages of melted life !
