Bleeding Polar Bear / Ice Mold

Bleeding Polar Bear
Bleeding Polar Bear

This is a series Polar-Bear-shaped ice molds made from polycarbonate. We fill in water in the mold and put it into the fridge, after several hours, we get ice Polar Bear. Then the ice polar bear will melt down, just like it is bleeding. It shows the environmental issue : Global Warming. The increasing high temperature makes the iceberg disappear , Polar Bears have no place to live.
The intention of designing it is to remind people : we should take measures now to protect our environment, to save our earth . Otherwise, the consequence will be devastated.
