Unique Way of Commemorating The Victims of WWII Through The Melting Ice S culptures

Brazilian sculptor Nele Azevedo arranged 5,000 little ice figurines on the step of Chamberlain Square in Birmingham, UK, to remember the ordinary people and soliders lost during WWI.

The melting figures created a truly haunting image, and they were crowned by a red figure that seemed to drip a trail of blood down the steps.

I wanted to break with the traditional characteristics of a monument,“Azevedo told Birmingham Mail.  “My sculptures remember people who are not remembered by other monuments.
