In the run-up to Christmas this year, Trafalgar Square's Northern Terrace will play host to a life-sized ice sculpture of a hunting polar bear. Over 10 days the Bear in the Square will melt, leaving a skeleton, a pool of water and a powerful environmental message.
Sculptor, Mark Coreth will finish carving the bear from a huge block of white ice during the morning of Friday 11th December. After that, anyone who visits Trafalgar Square will be able to reach out and touch the melting bear and the skeleton as it emerges.
