Look close and you will see....

 

 

 

 


Walking past the workers and artist who were building this sculpture I noticed that some of them were using tools to scrape the ice. I thought that they were doing this to make sure the blocks of ice fit together properly. I had quite a surprise this morning when I walked closer to the sculpture. The artists were actually carving words into some of the blocks of ice. They were leaving messages for all who came to see the sculpture. They were writing the word "H A I T I" in different languages. This was so interesting to see. These artists were appealing to everyone, not just Norwegians, to contribute some money to help the suffering people in Haiti. Now, that is a very good idea. That's My2Cents.

Wow! If it was that cold where I live, I would build Haiti ice blocks too! But it's only cold enough to snow hard dippin dot type things.
