‘Drowning Girl’ sculpture sparks climate change conversation — and more

An eerie sculpture that depicts a drowning girl statue has people talking in Spain — and around the world. The artist, Ruben Orozco explains his sculpture as a climate change conversation starter.

In a local river in Bilbao, Spain, locals awoke to a ghastly sight. The sculpture, titled ‘Bihar’ (meaning ‘Tomorrow’ in Basque) acts as a reminder of climate change. As the tide rises and falls, so does the water that covers the face of the eerily stunning sculpture. The artist who crafted the Bihar sculpture has explained that the enigmatic figure intends to warn the people of today that their failure to respond to climate change could result in a metaphorical drowning of tomorrow’s children.
