London Ice Bear

Here's a truly artistic project to highlight the threat of global warming, which the Flat Earth Society of diehards still refuse to believe in: The London Ice Bear. This graphic shows a glass maquette of the life-sized London Ice Bear that will appear in Trafalgar Square on Friday 11 December and slowly melt until its bronze skeleton is revealed. The display ends on Sunday 20 December. The sculpting team include Duncan Hamilton, Mark Coreth and Jamie Hamilton. The project is supported by the World Wildlife Fund.
