Melting Art by Nele Azevedo

Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo created a beautiful installation of tiny ice men who sat out in the sun until they melted. I like the ephemeral nature of the pieces, and how they changed and seemed to slump as the sun took its inevitable toll. You can also see more photos of the installation on Flickr.

(Thanks, Neatorama.)
