Ice people: a tribute to the Titanic victims


As we move towards the 101st anniversary of the sinking of Titanic on 15th April, I think this is one of the most moving tributes I have seen.

Last October, Brazilian artist, Nele Azevedo, placed 1,517 small ice sculptures of people on the steps of Custom House Square in Belfast: one ice person for each of the men, women and children who lost their lives that tragic night. The gathered crowds then watched as each ice person slowly melted and disappeared.


A report of the event can be read on the BBC News website but I think the images really speak for themselves.
