Naked People on Ice

It sounds like a fab new ice skating show, like Torvill and Dean, but nekkid.   Um, but it’s not.

Attempting to raise awareness about climate change, hundreds of people have taken part in a ‘living sculpture’ on Aletsch glacier in Switzerland.  Factor 30+ sunscreen and ‘nipples up’ were a must.

The photo shoot by Spencer Tunick, the New York artist famous for his pictures of nude gatherings in public settings worldwide, was designed to draw attention to the effects of global warming on Switzerland’s shrinking glaciers.

It said most Swiss glaciers will disappear by 2080 if global warming continues at its current pace.  Temperatures during the shoot hovered around 50 degrees.
