It's beautiful.
Brazilian sculptor Nele Azevedo arranged 5,000 little ice figurines on the step of Chamberlain Square in Birmingham, U.K., to remember the men and women lost during WWI, including the civilians. The melting, ghostly figures, placed by volunteers, created a truly haunting image, and they were crowned by a red figure that seemed to drip a trail of blood down the steps.

That is one spooky use of ice. It reminds me if the film noir verb "to ice" someone. When it's done on a mass scale with bureaucratic precision and indifference, it's easy to see how genocide could go on unchallenged.

Life is soooo fragile.
