5,000 ice sculptures placed on city steps in moving World War 1 commemoration

The unusual art installation in Birmingham’s Chamberlain Square saw 5,000 sculptures placed on a flight of steps and left to melt in the sunshine.







An army of 5,000 ice sculptures slowly melting in the sunshine brought home to Birmingham the sacrifices so many were forced to endure in World War I.

Thousands gathered from across the world for their chance to place a frozen figure in memory of the men and women – not just soldiers – whose lives were taken during the conflict on the steps in Chamberlain Square.

With tears in their eyes, some decorated their sculptures with flowers and ribbons in memory of relatives who died in the trenches and at home.

The sculptures may have melted, but the memories of the poignant display will stay with the descendants forever.

Dark clouds and torrential rain had threatened to dominate yesterday’s event to mark the 100 years since the start of WWI.

But as soon as the first of the detailed sculptures were sat on the steps the blue skies and sunshine returned.

One of the first to place a carving was Pam Brooking whose great grandfather John Osborne Walford fought in the war with the 8th Batallion Worcester Regiment.
