Polar bear ice sculpture represents melting Arctic (video)

Visitors to the WWF Arctic tent at the Copenhagen Climate Conference (COP15), which started today, were greeted by an ice sculpture by artist Mark Coreth. made from a chunk of ice from the Arctic.

Ice Bear has a very powerful message, he says. “This might be in the form of a polar bear, but actually it’s a sculpture of the Arctic. If you touch the bear, you’re touching the Arctic.”

The ice bear will presumably melt away during the two weeks of the conference. What could be more symbolic of what the meeting is all about!
