This giant piece of popsicle art by Italian artist Luciana Rondolini will melt away before your very eyes if you stand there long enough! The title of the exhibition 'Calamidad Cósmica' means 'cosmic calamity.' Visitors to the Italian gallery were amazed by the 'real-time' art piece and were eager to capture pictures before the entire installation ended up on the floor!

The brightly colored popsicles might look cheery, but as with most modern art there is a deeper meaning behind the works. The fluidity and short shelf life of the popsicle's are meant to convey the passing of time in one's life. This example of popsicle art marks a fun and engaging exhibition which could be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
