Came across this powerful image today while looking for an image of thawing in springtime for Parker Palmer’s post.

These are ice sculptures by Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo melting on the steps of Berlin’s Concert Hall at the Gendarmenmarkt.

The particular medium of melting ice seems to capture some of the essential fragility and vulnerability of being human that might otherwise be lost. 

Beautiful.
