Ice Building Mystery Solved !
I have discovered the purpose for the various ice "igloos" I have been seeing around Oslo, Norway. These ice "sculptures" are to call attention to the suffering that is happening in Haiti. Artists in Norway are building these in hope of raising money to donate to the suffering people in Haiti. The ice block structure you see in this picture took 2 full days to build. The workers worked late into the night in freezing cold weather to build this very special work or art. In the background you can see a brick building. This is the Nobel Peace Prize building. It is called "city hall". It is where President Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize. I think that putting the ice sculpture close to this historic building is a good idea. But that's just My2Cents. More to come on this important issue about Haiti.
