SO there we were stood in the cold when sculptor Mark Coreth arrived in Trafalgar Square sat on top of his life-sized ‘Ice Bear’ sculpture as part of the WWF’s campaign to highlight the plight of the bears in the Arctic where, it says here, melting icecaps are threatening their survival. This is interactive ice, and The Ice Bear may be touched by the public and in so doing contribute to its gradual melting, symbolising man’s supposed part in the melting of the ice caps. As the ice melts a bronze polar bear skeleton artwork inside the bear will slowly be revealed. Yeah, under the ice there are previous ores and minerals. We’re saved!
